DESCRIPTION


Thomason 1802 Patent–4 Window Version XV

This is a fairly rare version of Thomason’s 1802 English patent corkscrew which Wallis illustrates as the 4 window, domed top variant XV. This example has a turned bone handle with what appears to be the original brush. 

I consider this piece to be in over all good to very good condition with the wire helix full and sharp. There is some minor scuffing and dings on the upper internal threads, collar and handle nut consistent with its age and use. Although the brush appears original, the cap on the opposite end is missing.

See photos and Wallis, “British Corkscrew Patents”, page 16 and Bull, “Ultimate Corkscrew Book”, pages 159-160.
