Rare Original Henshall patented in 1795. This one is the rarer size for opening Quart size bottles. Lovely handle with acorn finial and rebrushed. Handle has very slight movement to the shaft and mentioned for completeness. Lovely flared shaft leading to ringed decoration before a great button well marked 'OBSTANDO PROMOVES Soho Patent' All characters easy to read and great decoration around the inside middle of the button. Finally lovely original worm with 4 turns so could be 1/2 turn short? Difficult to find a better example.


Tiny chip in brush end of handle, slight movement on handle and worm may or may not be 1/2 turn short
