Coneys Patent Corkscrew
An original Victorian corkscrew, incorporating a bright nickel plated barrel and spout - tightly mounted with the original ebonized hard-wood handgrip. The handle incorporates a hollow 'push' rod for depressing the marble in codd bottles, enabling the lemonade or mineral water to be extracted. When the marble is held down the gas will force the liquid up and through the hollow handle, flowing out of the spout and into a glass.
The bright nickel plated barrel is impressed "Coneys Patent" - see image 6.
The cast steel worm is 'tight' at the base of the barrel - the tip fully intact - see image 5.
Overall height - 5 5/8" (143mm).
Very good, period condition - minor nibbles to the push rod opening, (consistent with genuine age and usage). No repairs.
