Robert Jones & Son

It arrived.  I am thrilled!
 
Peter and talked on the phone today and were discussing the potential issues with getting an old king’s screw.  Usually the gearing is messed up, it won’t function properly.  The seller of this piece assured me that the ratchet worked well, and true to her word, it works perfectly.  Not a missing cog, not even a damaged one.  The helix is long, sharp, and complete, and the badge is beautiful; boldly embossed ROBERT JONES & SON, *PATENT*
 
A lovely piece, it will sit in the collection for at least 24 hours…  I have a feeling there will be a couple of offers forthcoming.  Until then, it is here, it is beautiful, and it will be used this evening.
 
Off to Maine in the morning…
