Fine Example of Coney’s 1854 Patent. It would be hard to find a nicer example of Coney’s patent than this one with its turned bone handle and nicely patinated steel frame. It is also has an elegant long worm with original sharp tip. It is marked “PATENT” on both sides of the bottle ring.  As Steven Webb ( ) notes: “The novel aspect [of this corkscrew ] was a clutch mechanism that cleverly insured that the worm was driven into the cork by a clockwise action and then with anticlockwise action was disengaged permitting the cork to be withdrawn without the worm unthreading from the cork”.
