a little magic…

Every once in a while, a little magic happens…

And, this cork extractor found its way to a friend, who has since dropped in the mail to the island!

Faintly marked:

MAGIC

CORK EXTRACTOR

and with the dates of Lucien Mumford’s patents of 1879 and 1892, this will be a nice addition to the cork extractor collection.

Of course, there is a folding example of the Mumford patent out there somewhere, that I would love to add to the collection if anyone has it.

Drop me a line!
