Popeye Figural — Two Versions

Offered in this lot are two versions of the familiar Popeye figural.  The earlier version–on the left in the photo--was produced by Bulls’ Pressjanst Aktiebolag, a Swedish Company.  It was patented in England April 28, and in France May 4, both in 1937.  It is made of pewter and is marked on the base "BULLS/COPYRIGHT/PAT.

The other Popeye piece is of a more recent vintage.  Although these Popeye corkscrews were sometimes part of an opener/bar tool set, they were also sold separately in special customized metal boxes—as was this one.  This piece comes complete with the original metal box and the insert warranty/guarantee card from The Table Theatre Co. Limited.  The bottom of the figural is marked “TM & © 1999 KFS, Inc.”

I consider both pieces to be in excellent to virtual mint condition.

See photos and Wallis, “British Corkscrew Patents”, page 201, Berntson & Ekman, “Scandinavian Corkscrews”, pages 47-51 and Bull, “Figural Corkscrews”, page 180.
