A fine example of  Baptiste Boué's French patent for a corkscrew, which was issued on February 11, 1888. It has a sliding lock mechanism on the inside of one side of the handle. This example has the trademark of Boué-Deveson struck on side of the handle and "MADE IN FRANCE" on the other. While I have only seen 2 or 3 other examples of this patent none were marked in this manner. This country of origin mark would indicate that it was made for export after such after such  regulations were imposed in the early 1890s.    


Note from seller (added 10/22/2008 9:30:48 AM):
It is also, as you can see, marked "DEPOSE" as part the Boué-Deveson trademark .
