DESCRIPTION

Ellis Collection -  Watts’s Patent Cigar Cutter Champagne Pocket Knife 

 

 

Unusual champagne pocket knife with wire nippers marked “Watts’s Patent” and “Chateau de Conde, Epernay”.  The nippers are locked by a sliding button on the tortoiseshell-type celluloid scales.  There is a small knife blade, unfortunately with a broken end, which acts as a cigar cutter with the hole in the scales.  At the other end is a large knife blade marked “John Watts Sheffield”. The corkscrew has a fluted worm. 
This is the 1892 British Patent of John Watts, Sheffield.  9.2 cms wide.

 

See Ellis – Corkscrews – page 57, Bull & Paradi – Champagne Collectibles – page 206, Wallis – British Corkscrew Patents – page 214.

 

CONDITION

 

Condition – Good, loss of plating and marks on blade, cigar cutter blade broken but still functional, button is loose but works, crack in scales at one end on one side and small chip on same scale, worm is intact.
