Watts Registered Pocket Knife with Viarengo Patent Corkscrew

This lovely pocket knife has both registered design and patent markings. On one side it is marked “C VIARENGO PATENT CORKSCREW” and has a face with a beard marked “THE CORKSCREW KING”.  The corkscrew has the two twisted claws as shown by the 1898 British Patent of Viarengo and Armanni. 

On the other side it is marked “RD NO 581553” for the 1911 British Registered Design of Watts.  The two blades are marked “JOHN WATTS SHEFFIELD ESTB 1765”.  The smaller blade is not sharp and has a flat edge – it may be a pipe bowl scraper.  The knife comes in a black leatherette covered box, 155mm long.

Condition very good, some scratches and marks on the knife blade.  Bladed worm is complete.

See Ellis & Ellis – Corkscrews – British Registered Designs – page 110 and Wallis – British Corkscrew Patents – page130.
