DESCRIPTION

Ellis Collection - Wulfruna Plant 1884 Patent Variant - Bronzed

Nice bronzed steel variant of the 1884 British Patent of Stephen Plant, known as the Wulfruna. 
The top of the handle has a key-hole shaped hole and a slot in which a steel plate can slide to lock the handle to the threaded shaft. 
This version has the later simple design of an L-shaped plate instead of the screw head of the original design. 
It has a wide cyphered worm. 
It is unmarked, but probably made by James Heeley and Son, Birmingham, and shown in their catalogue, number 4464.  
18.5 cms
