DESCRIPTION

Peerless - Wier 1885 U. S. Patent

Although Marshall Arthur Wier patented variations of his concertina corkscrew, this U.S.patented version is by far the most striking in appearance with its open frame topped off with the concertina assist.  Wier was granted his U.S.patent  November 10, 1885, number 330,357.  This example is marked “PEERLESS” on one arm and “PAT. NOV 10 1885” on another.  Both sides are so marked.

I consider this example to be in very good to excellent condition showing minimal wear and with at least 95% of the plating intact. There is no rust, damage or repairs and the webbed helix is original, complete and sharp.

See photos and Peters “Mechanical Corkscrews”, page 216 and O'Leary, “Corkscrews”, page 72
