Description

This splendid brass barscrew is a counterpart of famous "The Champion" patented by Michael Redlinger in sept. 1897 and manufactured in great number by The Arcade Manufacturing Company of Freeport Illinois. The originals carry the height inscription "CHAMPION" and the ornamentation represents a floral decoration, here itís replaced by a vine. Mount by either clamps or screws on the bar top of the American bars. It makes it possible to open without effort, of only one movement all bottles. The worm which equips these corkscrews is known as "fast worm", itís a full worm with very untied and very tilted whorls. The clamp on the lower part of the corkscrew is used to block the bottle neck during the clearing. This part is offered to me.
