Very Rare Robert Jones Birmingham Patent No423 Oct 1840 Mechanical Corkscrew Nr For Sale

This superb corkscrew measures 170mm (6.75'') closed x 90mm (3.5'') across the handle and weighs 150 grams. It is marked to the barrel " Robert Jones & Son Birmingham Registered No 423 8th October 1840 " and was the first patent registered by Jones. Robert Jones had a reputation for exceptional quality and this piece really shows this in both design and engineering. It is in excellent condition with a great patina to the barrel and the turned bone handle which has the usual age related cracks and needs a new brush. The mechanism works really smoothly and the tip of the helix is still perfectly intact, and one of the two screw in spikes is slightly shorter than the other (photo12). It really is the finest patent corkscrew I have come across and a piece that does not turn up on the open market very often especially in such honest condition. A fine investment piece or centre to any serious collection.
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me.
