DESCRIPTION

 


1875 Registered Design Fish Missing Can Opener

 

 

Attractive heavy steel fish-shaped tool with folding wire worm, but unfortunately missing the can opener which has broken off. 
The fish is clearly marked on one side with the Registration Diamond for the 1875 British Registered Design of Frederick Sunderland, trading as Coney & Co, Birmingham.
It was advertised as the “Fish Torpedo” in an 1878 advert. (The registration is actually for the fish-shaped handle.)
13 cms   
 
See Ellis – Corkscrews – British Registered Designs – page 42.
