About this item

A Hardwood and Brass Henshall Type Corkscrew
Date : c1860
Period : Victoria
Origin : England
Decoration : Turned handle
Condition : Wear to wooden handle
Restoration : None
Weight : 67 grams
In 1795 The Revd Samuel Henshall was the first person to patent a corkscrew. His simple addition of a button at the top of the worm made it easier to remove a cork by helping to break the seal between cork and glass.
This fine quality example has a turned brass shank above a 6cm steel worm. The torpedo shape of the turned hardwood handle makes it particularly comfortable in the hand.
The perfect addition for any collector or fine wine enthusiast.
