DESCRIPTION

For those of you that attended the ICCA AGM, I presented this corkscrew as a show and tell.  The only known example that has turned up, it is surely the smallest double helix (S-PAT type) that we have ever seen.  Sampson Mordan was a silversmith, that was awarded several patents for mechanical pencils, but also made scent bottles.  


Perhaps this was intended to uncork the scent, which would then be added to his wonderfully designed bottles.  


Marked on the sheath. S. Mordan & Co Patent, it is truly a fantastic little corkscrew.


Note: on the images, I zoomed in to give an idea of the fine helixes.

CONDITION

Nice condiion
