DESCRIPTION

Pictured are two unmarked versions of US Patent 547,478, Edward E. Brown, 08 Oct 1895.  THIS ITEM IS ON THE RIGHT - ONLY ONE PIECE INCLUDED - THE SECOND PIECE IS LISTED AS A SEPARATE ITEM.


Based on construction the one on the left is the earlier version.  It has a lead handle that was at one point nickel plated, the frame is nickel plated and shaped differently than the one on the right.


The later version on the right has steel handle and an unplated steel frame with a more modern shape.


This patent allows for adjusting the penetration of the screw into the corks by pushing the button at the top to release the turning shaft from the worm.  On the left the button stops at the handle - while in the later design on the right it inserts into the handle.


Picture one shows both pieces in the insertion position.  Picture two shows both pieces in the withdrawal position.
