DESCRIPTION

 Ellis Collection - Rare Wolverson Signet 1876 Reg Design Frame

 

Rare steel sliding frame self-puller corkscrew with Wolverson’s classic Signet handle marked with a Registration Diamond. 
It has an elegant Archimedean worm.  However this makes it an ineffective self-puller because the worm bores a hole through the cork and it does not climb up the helix.  This is probably why this this is an uncommon corkscrew. 
The diamond refers to the 1876 British Registered Design, Number 297635 of Edwin Wolverson, Birmingham. 17 cms

See Ellis – Corkscrews – British Registered Designs – page 44 and bookmark, Ellis – Corkscrews – page 128, Peters - Mechanical Corkscrews – page 107.
