Number 423 was the first registered design for a corkscrew. It was registered at 11 am on 8th October 1840.

The two tapering spikes andthe brass button ensure the worm is positioned correctly before starting to

screw it in. The pitch of the threaded shank is the same as the wire worm, otherwise it will rip out the

centre of the cork.Once the helix is fully inserted the button and shank give the cork a twist to

loosen adhesion. The withdrawal is down to brute force, there is no mechanical advantage. Turning

the handle anticlockwise removes the worm from the cork, which is stuck on the spikes.

Please examine the photos thoroughly to assess the extent of the damage before offerding.
