DESCRIPTION

Unusual Round Bow Folding Pocket Corkscrew

As far as folding bow corkscrews go, this round shape is fairly unusual. Because of its round shape and internal hinge jaws, it looks to be loosely based on the 1883 Williamson’s folding bow patent. On this example, the worm is also secured by a pin through the internal hinge jaws. Being unmarked, its origin in unclear, but I have always thought it may be either German or American.

I consider this example to be in excellent condition showing only minor wear. The hinge action is firm and tight. I can find no markings on this piece.

See photos.
