Rare example of Edward Hatfield 1904 British Pat. #17,920--Direct Pressure corkscrew that was designed for the easier removal of a cork from the bottle--turned acorn style oakwood handle-4", length closed-6", length open-8" with speed worm and no markings.  ScrewCode #MDx071

OPERATION: Begins with worm fully extended. Downward pressure causes the quick pitch grooved worm shaft to rotate around a ball in the bottom of the outer tube - further pressure inserts the worm.  A slight turn of the handle locks the ball in a groove at right angles to the shaft - pulling on the handle draws cork in the normal manner.   Reversing the process while holding the cork allows quick cork release.

Further details on this corkscrew are available in:

British Corkscrew Patents from 1795, Fletcher Wallis, page 146
