DESCRIPTION

Rare 1863 Chinnock Patent Corkscrew

A rare corkscrew from the collection of Don Minzenmayer.

In his 1984 Best Six, Don described this corkscrew as:

An unusual corkscrew with “A Beautiful Par of Legs”. The “feet” rest on the top edge of the bottle to provide “purchase” needed for the cam-neck section to withdraw the cork. There are no markings. It is similar in action to the German 1881 F. Kummer Pat. No. 2642 – but is the exact “Action” of the American 1863 Patent Number 38,146, Charles Chinnock.”

Minzenmayer reported on a visit from Bob Nugent. “His conclusion was that it was NOT a Kummer.  He remarked that the body on this CS is cast.  It was definitely American,  If it was German, it would have a fine machined finish, not a plated casting and look at the wood handle.  You have never seen a German handle with that simple American look.  AND look where they were found, within a few hundred miles of each other in the Northern USA.  His conclusion was that it was a Chinook proto-type that did not work too well and they discontinued experimenting with it.  The screw may have been cast also and may have been the reason the point broke.”

The worm is short.
