Clough Advertising Corkscrews for Clough Advertising Corkscrews

As mentioned he other day, I picked up a few corkscrews on my adventure down, and back up, the coast.

Two of the corkscrews acquired were wooden sheath Clough’s.

What is cool about them, is both carry different advertising for Clough, but they are also different sizes.

The smaller one reads:

CLOUGH
Corkscrew Company
ALTON, N. H. U. S. A.

SOLID STEEL ADVERTISING CORKSCREWS
PRINTED TO ORDER BY THE 1000
CLOUGH’S PATENTS 337,309 & 441,137

The larger one reads:

Rockwell-Clough Co.
ALTON, N.H. U.S.A.

THE CLOUGH CORKSCREW WAS THE FIRST WIRE CORKSCREW AND THE ORIGIN OF ALL THE PATENT MEDICINE CORKSCREWS NOW BY THE MILLION ALL OVER THE WORLD

And, it is clear that the smaller one is made for a smaller Clough wire corkscrew, as the thicker version wouldn’t fit. A pretty cool little pair of Cloughs.
