Antique American 19thC Brass Bar Corkscrew ~ The Acme
Original late 19th or early 20th century American made brass corkscrew known as The Acme. Used in bars and restaurants in the late 19th century this wine bottle opener would originally have been clamped to the top of a table or bar and used on an industrial scale for opening wine. The heavy brass casting is serviceable as it comes apart with the top unscrewing perhaps to grease or oil the moving parts. Originally it was chrome covered which has mostly worn off but there are remnants still visible throughout. A great addition to any vintage bar, vineyard or rustic man cave area.
Marked on the side: The Acme
The Acme measures approximately 15" by 15" by 3" thick and weigh 8lbs 14oz. The opening for clamping measures 2.25".
In good solid condition and ready to use with scuffs and loss of chrome plating throughout (please see all pictures as they form part of the condition description).
