The Peerless Peerless

As mentioned the other day, I picked up a Peerless corkscrew that isn’t marked Peerless.  Rather, it is marked PAT. APL’D FOR instead.

And, while it is clearly a Peerless less the Peerless marking, there are a few differences in construction as well–with the double riveted handle versus the single bring the most obvious difference.

A bit different where the shank is riveted to the arms as well…

And, actually the frame that is on the base of the piece are two different sizes/shapes as well…

An interesting addition to add to the collection!
