last week, I had managed to pick up a corkscrew 4 some on eBay. And, one of the 4 looked to be an early Erhardt patent.

well, the grouping arrived a couple of days ago, and indeed what looked to be an Erhardt, was definitely an Erhardt–with wooden ball handle and all. While, it isn’t marked, the mechanism works perfectly (after a little w-dog-40).

Also amongst the 4 was a rather ordinary looking folding bow–until you looked at the markings. Not a rarity, but a nicely marked Robert Jones & Sons Makers / Birmingham.

The RJ & Sons will probably hit eBay, as I already have one. As for the Erhardt, we shall see what trade offers it brings : )
