Perry & Co’s Improved Patent Corkscrews

From the May 1882 copy of Perry & Co’s Monthly Illustrated Price Current:




These Corkscrews are a vast improvement on the ordinary Corkscrews as they give a great increase of power to the drawer, and will be found to save much trouble. The Cork is extracted by simply continuing to turn the screw after it has pieced the Cork.  When lined with India Rubber, the neck of the bottle ensured against breakage.
