DESCRIPTION

3 Self Pullers – Plant’s Magic, Joyce, Genot

Three self-puller corkscrews of different designs –

1) Nickel plated Plant’s Magic, marked “Plant’s” “Patent” on one side and “The Magic” “No 12140” on the other side.  This is William Plant’s 1905 British patent which was never granted.

2) Unmarked dark steel corkscrew with a more rounded shape than the Magic.  It may be an example of the 1921 British patent of Joseph Joyce, which has a sheath in the patent drawing, but no examples have been found so far.  There are some partial thread marks on the shaft of the corkscrew.

3) Unmarked nickel plated example of the 1888 French patent of Genot and Gunther.  It is more heart shaped with a pointed top.

See Peters - Mechanical Corkscrews page 110, Wallis – British Corkscrew Patents page 147, 152, Bidault – Brevets de Tire-Bouchons Francais – page 105.

Condition – Very good - 1) Some plating loss, 2) very good. 3) plating intact, slightly poor casting of ring on one side, all 3 worms intact.
