Ellis Collection - Hollweg corkscrew and matching carriage key

Interesting matching pair of Hollweg folding corkscrew and folding carriage key.

Both are marked “Made Abroad” and “Patent Applied For” on one side and “Made in Germany” on the other side.  Both have 3 scallops on each link and round shanks.

Sizes are 6.6 cms in the closed position.

A British patent was granted to Robert Culp (probably Hollweg’s agent) in 1890 and Hollweg registered the design in Germany in 1901. 

See Ellis & Ellis – Corkscrews page 73, Peters & Giulian – Pocket Corkscrews – page 63.


Condition – Corkscrew – some marks on the steel sections, spring mechanism is weak, worm is intact. 

Carriage key – some loss of plating and rusting on the steel sections and on carriage key on one side,  spring mechanism is strong.
