I am currently working on an article on the 1903 Lowenstein patent corkscrew.
In looking at the past collectorcorkscrews.com auctions, these sometimes are referred to as a:
“Clough Corkscrew with hang tag”
“Clough Corkscrew with advertising tab”
“Clough Corkscrew with hanging tag”
“Clough Corkscrew with adverting tag”
“Clough Tin Lithograph Hanging Tab”
And, within O”Leary – the Lowenstein patent of 1903–and Fred explained that these were most likely made by Clough.
Lowenstein, amongst other illustrations, shows this in his patent:
There are several known variations of advertising on the Lowenstein, and I am just trying to compile a list of known examples.
So, if you have a Lowenstein patent with advertising (or without advertising if such an animal exists) please let me know.
I would be interesting in adding your version to the list. And, if you want to send pictures of yours, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is the current list of Lowenstein’s that I have seen:
“BAILEY’S H & C PURE RYE”
“FRANCIS H LEGGETT & CO. NEW YORK”
“F. WESTHEIMER & SONS, PLANET, SOUR MASH, ST. JOSEPH, MO”
“HANCE BROS. & WHITE, PHARMCL CHEMISTS PHILADELPHIA”
“HUMPHREY & MARTIN’S FINE WHISKEYS PHILAD“ (in yellow or tan)
“PEARL WEDDING RYE”
“PEARL WEDDING SELECT WHISKEY”
“THE GREAT A & P TEA CO. EXTRACTS” (in red or yellow/tan).
What others are out there? Drop me a line!
