Corkscrew - 1888 Greely Patent Cork Extractor

This wood handle puller with hook is Benjamin Greely's 1888 American patent (No. 379,010 issued on March 6, 1888). As the hook is inserted by the cork, a groove in the shaft allows air to escape and when the hook is below the cork, it is turned and the cork can be "lifted" out. It is nicely marked on the shaft PAT MAR 6 88 (see below). 3 5/8".
