Ellis Collection - Goodyear 1851 USA Patent Roundlet

Lovely example of the earliest known US patent date marked on a corkscrew. 
Nelson Goodyear’s Patent refers to the revolutionary process of vulcanising or hardening rubber. 
The black roundlet is made of this new hardened rubber.  It is lightly marked “Goodyear’s Patent 1851” on one half.  The other half has a brass metal insert which holds the fluted worm, which folds and pushes inside.  8 cms.

See  O’Leary – Corkscrews – page 32, Ellis & Ellis – Corkscrews page 71, Peters & Giulian – Pocket Corkscrews – page 121.


Condition – Very good, rubber case is good, metal insert moves, worm is intact.
