DESCRIPTION

Louis Strauss 9 Tool Patent Folding Bow--Plus 4

This nine tool folding bow with leather case is the centerpiece of this lot. It was patented by Louis Strauss on August 2, 1949. Though Strauss apparently never marked his pieces, his patented bows are identifiable by the can and bottle opener tools and the round-nose hammer. These Strauss bows are rather hard to find, and particularly with both the bow and leather case in excellent condition as is this example.

The other 4 folding bows, while nice, are more common than the Strauss. The piece on the top right is the George Havell Patent and is marked “Pat. Oct. 16, ‘77". The other three examples are unmarked and of the three finger bow type.

I consider the Strauss example to be in excellent condition with all its tools. The other four pieces I consider to be in overall good condition with varying degree of wear consistent with age and some use.

See photos, and O’Leary, “Corkscrews”, page 155.
