A rare William Edward Hipkins 1879 mechanical corkscrew. British patent 3167, this piece is in excellent uncleaned, unpitted condition with some apparent light tarnish surface rust. The faceted worm is complete and mechanically the operation is smooth and tight. The markings indicate 'Lever Rack' on top side and 'G.F.Hipkins & Son' and 'Patent' reverso. See Ferd Peters "Mechanical Corkscrews"pp188 for further reference.


The corkscrew is in excellent condition having no apparent faults and no pitting. Some minor light tarnish which appears commensurate with age. The function and operation is sound and reasonably tight.
