DESCRIPTION

 

Lund King’s Screw with Bottle Grips, Queen’s Patent

  

Classic Lund King’s Screw with a bronze barrel with 3 spring bottle grips. 

It has a small badge at the base of the barrel marked “Lunds Patent 57 Cornhill”.  The 3 springs are marked “The Queen’s Patent”, “Granted”, “To T. Lund London” respectively and there is a crown at the top of each spring.  These refer to Thomas Lund’s 1838 British Patent.

 

It has a simple varnished wooden handle with brush and hanging ring.  It has a narrow steel rack with steel pinion handle.  The central steel inner shaft has a wide right hand thread.

 

See Wallis – British Corkscrew Patents – page 19/20, Ellis & Ellis – Corkscrews page 155 and Peters - Mechanical Corkscrews page 222.
