DESCRIPTION

5 Murphy Corkscrews – 1901 Murphy Patent

The center piece of these 5 R. Murphy corkscrews is the John Murphy patent of April 23, 1901. The patented feature of that corkscrew being the small hook on the rim of the bell which served to turn the self-puller bell into a crown cap-lifter as well. The shank is marked “Pat. Apr 23 ‘01/R. Murphy”. R. Murphy was the manufacturer.

Of the other examples in this group, the piece with the acorn handle is marked simply “MURPHY”, which may be of earlier vintage. The other three are marked “R. MURPHY/BOSTON”. All markings on on the shanks.

I consider these examples to be in very good to excellent condition. The patented example is in excellent condition with no damage and the worm is original full and sharp.

See photos, Bull, “Ultimate Corkscrew Book”, page 18 and O'Leary, “Corkscrews”, page 115
