DESCRIPTION

Edwin Cotterill is one of Englands most famous corkscrew makers. He made Thomason's / King screws and a super advanced clutch CS. This is the one. A fully operational clutch Cotterill is very rare.

Edwin Cotterill’s registered design of 1842. Wooden top handle  with handle loop and brush. Brass barrel with a large badge - Royal Coat of Arms - , which states “ Edwin Cotterills – Patent – Self Adjusting “. Inside the long brass neck, the steel shank has crossover threads. Turning the handle clockwise produces both up and down movement due to a very smart clutch mechanism.

The mechanism works correctly and smoothly - no stops or visable clips to the mechanism. Nice tapered full lenght wire helix. Inside the barrel there is also a button with two small pointed studs that engage the cork. This button may have been replaced  since there is no significant visible wear to it.

Some chips at the end of the handle. The badge is crisp and clear. Complete with ring and brusch.

I accept either paypal or bank transfer but prefer a bank transfer if possible.

Please review my corkscrew page www.vintagecorkscrewcenter.com for other corkscrews on display. On my page you will find the story of Edwin Cotterill and his life.

Good luck with your bidding. My reserve price is 2500 £.

 

CONDITION

Overall good. Smooth and well functional mechanism. Nice crisp badge.  Wire helix is good.  No dents to the barrel. Some small chips is missing to the end of the handle. Please review photos.
