Thinet 1873 French Patent Roundlet Tool Set


Unusual roundlet and tool set in a burgundy red leather tubular carrying case.  The nickel plated brass roundlet is marked ”Brevete SGDG, Paris TD” for the 1873 French Patent of Benoit Thinet. 

There are 4 steel tools in the case – button hook, awl, screw driver and of course a corkscrew with bladed worm.  All the tools have attractive decorative shafts and the indented top which fits into the roundlet handle.  The case is marked “Rodrigues 42 Piccadilly” for the smart London retailer.  Corkscrew 7 cms long, case 8 cms wide.


See Ellis & Ellis – Corkscrews page 72, Bidault – Brevets de Tire-Bouchons Francais – page 49, and Peters & Giulian – Pocket Corkscrews – page 130.




Good, roundlet has lost some plating, steel tools are perfect, worm is intact, one round end of the case is partly torn, the bottom part of the press stud has come away from the case, but could be glued back, case has marks and scratches.
