Ward update…

Shortly after the blog was posted this morning, I received an inquiry regarding the Ward patent…

Yes… It is marked, and yes it is intended to open Codd bottles…

It is marked PAT. NO. 128450 21/6/19–although Ward’s patent (British) is actually from 1918

The handle has two cutaways to serve a openers for various types of stoppers from the time, V-slot for glass stoppers, and additional wooden pieces that extend from the handle that were intended as the Codd marble pushers.

Thanks for the question!
