Looking for Lowenstein…

lowenstein2

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 josef@vintagecorkscrews.com

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!
