DESCRIPTION

2 Lund Type Levers with Unusual Badges

Two Lund type levers with unusual badges, trying to trade on the 1855 British Patent of Lund and Hipkins. 

One has a badge marked “Lond, Patentee London” with a Royal Coat of Arms – this is a deliberate attempt to mislead with a wrong spelling of Lund.  The other side of this badge is marked “New Lever Corkscrew  London”.

The other has a badge marked both sides with “The Patent Lever” with a crown in a circle – presumably trying to imitate the gothic H on Heeley’s version.

Both levers are bronzed and have matching bronzed worms.

See Ellis & Ellis – Corkscrews page 107.

Condition – very good, slight loss of bronzing, both worms intact.
