Invincible Cork Puller

From a 1904 issue of Iron Age:

Invincible Cork Puller

Hugo Reisinger, Bowling Green Building, 9-15 Broadway, New York, has recently put on the market the Invincible cork puller, here illustrated.  The puller is compact, of neat and attractive appearance and simple, durable construction.  It is entirely nickeled with the exception of the self-centering safety bottle grip handles, which are japanned.  The handle is 10 inches long, the body being 6 inches high.  The handle rests below the table, shelf or bar to which the puller is clamped.  No springs are used and the handle drops out of the way after use.  The operator incurs no risk from broken bottles, as the rubber cushioned grips are made as to automatically self center the cork under the worm screw.  The puller can be adjusted so that a long cork will be drawn entirely out, although a valuable feature of it is that by a turn of a screw the cork can be so drawn as to have a small portion of it still in the neck of the bottle, which can be readily removed by hand. 

 With many beverages especially those of costly character, this serves the double purpose of preserving the contents until actually needed, at the same time indicating the originality and freshness of the package.  The manufacture dwells on impossibility of error, as is often occasioned by a withdrawn cork accidentally left in the machine, which if undiscovered in the rush of business, is liable to drive the cork or a fresh bottle in, frequently breaking the bottle.  This puller withdraws the cork quickly and easily and strips the cork from the worm screw in a single movement of the lever handle, without removing the bottle from the mouth of the puller.  The same manufacturer makes the Invincible bottle corkscrew, which has already been illustrated in these columns.
