DESCRIPTION

 

 

Thomason with Badge and Fancy Handle

 

Lovely classic Thomason corkscrew with a bronze barrel with brushed line finish and decorative lines across.  It has a lovely wooden handle with a very unusual knopped ball end, and with a brush.  There is a bevelled fixing on top of the handle and bevelled top of the brass inner shaft. 
The brass badge has a Royal Coat of Arms and is marked “Ne Plus Ultra”, the Thomason logo.  Edward Thomason patented his invention in 1802.
