DESCRIPTION

A direct pressure corkscrew by Peter Lymburner Robertson, Canfield, Ontario, Canada. Robertson was granted Canadian Patent No. 95,620 on October 17, 1905 and U. S. Patent No. 800, 682 on October 3. 1905. He applied for the Canadian patent two weeks before the U. S. application. He wrote, “The nature of my invention relates to the way in which the corkscrew can be screwed into the cork (that is to be drawn) by simply pressing downward on the handle part of the device."  Works smoothly.

 I am offering for sale the wine antiques collection of Carroll Johnson.  A very discriminating collector, Carroll sought wine antiques in very good condition for over 35 years. Over 200 of Carroll’s wine antiques are shown in the book Wine Antiques & Collectibles. These include cradles, coasters, tastevins, bin labels, bottles, chariots, coopers’ tools, vineyard tools, corkers, bungs, and much more. A handful of his 2000+ corkscrews are also shown. Carroll became a member of the International Correspondence of Corkscrew Addicts in 1989 at the invitation of Bob Nugent.
