DESCRIPTION

This is a very unique mechanism corkscrew - marked DEPOSE and PERFECT AUTOMATIQUE.  It is the French sister to German DRGM 1,216,984, 13 February 1932, August Holland-Cunz, Steinbach- Hallenberg i. Th.  See SCReWbase MNl220 and MNl230 and Peters German Corkscrew Registrations page 61.

The method of operation is described in SCReWbase as - "OPERATION:  Starts with worm in lowest position.  Turning clockwise inserts worm (entire  piece turns).  When bottle meets frame further clockwise turning causes the left threaded shaft to rise and pull cork.  Worm does not turn during extraction thanks to a spring loaded catch mechanism that disengages during extraction."  See picture of the catch mechanism.

One of these sold at Christie's November 8th Corkscrew Sale for 528GBP.  See listing #165 and Plate 8.

 

SCReWcode: MNl220
