Wonderful find this 1880s English patented corkscrew designed by Stephen Plant and patented in 1884. Plant named this corkscrew (Wulfruna).
The corkscrew has an unusual mechanism atop the handle. To operate turn the handle counterclockwise until it stops at the top, slide the flat plate located at the top over the threaded shaft.
