Very nice example of Wier’s Double Compound Lever.  Plenty of the original bronzed finish and is marked on both sides “Double No 4283”, “Wier’s Patent” and “J*H*S B”.  This is for the 1884 British Patent of Marshall Arthur Wier, Upper Norwood.  J*H*S B refers to James Heeley and Sons, Birmingham, the manufacturers, and No 4283 is the model number.  The worm is fixed as it should be and does not slide, a fault as many do.

See Ellis & Ellis – Corkscrews page 121 and Wallis – British Corkscrew Patents page 100.


Condition is very good.  Small very old chip to handle (see photo).
