arrivals and J. PLANT

Don Bull emailed to explain that J. Plant was one of the Wolverhampton Plants–those of W & J Plant (Cutlers), the Wulfruna (Patented by Stephan Plant in 1884) and Plant’s Magic (Patented by William Plant in 1905).

I do find it interesting, the latest find would only have "J. Plant" as a signature. For the time being, I am going to work under the assumption that it was early in on the Plant corkscrew dynasty. Hopefully some answers will be discovered soon, as I have started researching the Wolverhampton Plant’s history… (Boy, do I really need the semester to start).

The syroco monk lux clock arrived today, as did the pair of Yankee # 1 bar screws… I am still waiting on a stylized cat Bosse corkscrew, but given it is making its trek from Austria, it could take a little while longer.
