DESCRIPTION


Ellis Collection - 2 Roundlets – Lund 1855 Patent with poem, Wright & Bailey 1873 Reg Des 

Two classic English roundlets, both with nickel plated cases -
1) Interesting roundlet marked “Lund’s Patent Spherical Joint London” on one half and with a poem inscribed across both halves –

All hearts as well as corks must yield
To our united efforts when
I draw the corks, she draws the men”.
