DESCRIPTION

1802 Thomason Variant Corkscrew by C. Jones

Edward Thomason's 1802 British Patent 2617. This is the Thomason III Variant. Oval brass handle. On the badge is "C. Jones Pantechnetheca" and three cherubs with grapes. The top handle may be a replacement.

From Showell's Dictionary of Birmingham by Thomas T. Harman and Walter Showell: "Pantechnetheca. —­A large place of general business, opened in 1824, at the New-street end of Union-passage. In 1817, there stood on this spot a publichouse, known as the 'Old Crown,' the entrance to which was in a large, open gateway at its side, through which a path led to the cherry orchard. The Pantechnetheca was one of 'the sights' of the town, the exterior being ornamented with pillars and statues; while the name was not only a puzzle to the 'Black Country' visitors, but quite a subject of dispute as to its etymology among the Greek scholars of the Grammar School opposite."
