Walter Wilkinson

On August 18, 1891, Walter Wilkinson of Providence, Rhode Island was awarded patent # 458,067 for his “Corkscrew.”

The patent was assigned to the Gorham Manufacturing Company, and an example has been on my wishlist for some time…

Yesterday, a deal was struck, and one will soon be arriving on the island.

Best 6 for 2021 candidate? It very well could be…
