 Short Barrel Thomason – Thomason Badge


Nice Thomason corkscrew with a short bronze barrel with a brass Thomason badge marked “Thomasons Patent, Ne Plus Ultra” with the Royal Coat of Arms. 

This is for the 1802 British Patent of Edward Thomason, Birmingham. 
The barrel has a few decorative lines at the top and bottom.  The handle is turned dark varnished wood with decorative lines.  It has a brush at one end and a hanging ring.  The shaft is fixed to the handle with an old flat steel plate.


See Wallis – British Corkscrew Patents – page 17 and Ellis & Ellis – Corkscrews – page 150






Condition – Very good, nice dark patina bronze with light scratches, a few dark marks, no dents, handle has a few scratches and a dent near the steel plate which may be an old repair, plate is pitted, worm has some pitting but is intact.  Mechanism works OK.
