DESCRIPTION

Excellent “London Rack” Corkscrew– N/R

Offered is this nice William Lund 1855 patent commonly known as the “London Rack”. It is fully marked. On one post it is marked “Lund Maker Cornhill”, and “And Fleet St London” on the other, and “Lund’s/Patent/London/Rack” on the shank under the handle.

I consider this example to be in excellent condition. I don’t believe this piece was ever plated or bronzed. The hanging ring appears original, but am not sure the brush is. The fluted wire helix is original, straight ane sharp. The rosewood handle is nicely turned with original finish. There is one small chip on the underside of the brush cavity.

See photos.
