Salutaris Water Company Corkscrew

Offered is a small, but quite rare corkscrew from the Salutaris Water Company of 236 Fulham Road, London. The body of the corkscrew appears to be boxwood, and has a serrated, brass base from which a graceful wire helix extends.

In doing a little research, the word "salutaris" seems to have a religious connotation. Wikipedia states the phrase "O Salutaris Hostia" means "O Saving Host", and is found in a hymn written by St. Thomas Aquinas.

The 1884 Official Catalogue of the International Health Exhibition shows the company produced pure, distilled and filtered waters, both aerated and still. They also sold Cyder, Ginger Ale, Soda and syrups for mixing with their water. It was also noted that the company had a patent stopper for champagne and also a corkscrew!!

I consider this example to be in excellent condition and it is fully marked as can be seen in the photos.

Payment, Postage and Insurance

U.S. buyers:

PaymentI prefer payment by personal check or money order. Western Union is also an alternative payment method. If you pay by check or MO, so there is no delay in getting your corkscrew(s), I will mail the package as soon as you let me know your check/MO has been mailed.

Postage:For this item, Priority postage is a flat rate $13.50. This includes insurance up to $300 value (if desired), and Delivery Confirmation. For values over $300, please add an additional $5.55 for values up to $400; $6.50 for values $400.01 to $500; $7.45 for values $500.01 to $600, $8.40 for values $600.01 to $700 and $9.35 for values $700.01 to $800.

By bidding, buyers agree to accept all risk. In the unlikely event of a problem, I will provide insurance and postage receipts for the buyer to file the insurance claim with the post office. Please be assured, however, that I packer well, and always attach the mailing information securely to the item inside the package should it become separated.

International buyers:

Payment--I prefer payment by Western Union if possible, though I will accept Paypal. I also accept personal checks if payable in U. S. dollars and drawn on a U.S. Bank (please, NO international money orders).

Postage–Since the U.S. Postal Service offers a number of options for international postage, depending on the level of security desired and customs issues, please contact me well before the close of auction for available options and an estimate of costs. The cost of postage will include the purchase of a Certificate of Mailing. Since I can not be responsible once I have mailed the item, by bidding the bidder agrees to accept all risk of damage or loss, and that in the unlikely event of such problem, I will only be responsible for providing the buyer with the postage receipt and the Certificate of Mailing as proof the item was mailed. Please be assured, however, that I pack well, and always attach the mailing address securely to the item inside the package should it become separated.
