HTF Antique English Carr of Liverpool S Eddowes Roundlet Folding Pocket Corkscrew Circa 1880-90s

Item - Hard to Find Antique Roundlet Corkscrew stamped Carr Liverpool and engraved S Eddowes, Circa 1880/90s. The corkscrew features a nickel silver plated barrel handle and steel helix/worm.

So who was Carr of Liverpool & S Eddowes... well to be fair we are not sure but don't believe either is the maker of the Corkscrew... after a little research we have found that Carr of Liverpool was (and still is..) a building merchants established around 1895 by a Mr John Carr dealing in Mortars and aggregates... so could this be a gift piece that was given to S Eddowes... and who could this be? Well a little research led us to Stanton Eddowes, a well- known Liverpool business man, his figure having been a familiar one on the Stock Exchange for many years.

He was head of the firm of Stanton Eddowes and Co., Merchants, The Albany, Old hall Street, and had for a long period taken an active part in the commercial and social life of Liverpool and Birkenhead.

Mr Eddowes resided at West Kirby, and on the formation of the Cheshire County Council he was elected as the representative of the Hoylake division, which he faithfully served up to the time of his retirement in 1894. He was one of the most valued and progressive members of the Council, giving his hearty support to every measure which tended to the better government of the county.

He was particularly enthusiastic on the question of the main roads, stoutly backing up Mr. Joseph Beckett in the steps which were taken to bring the county roads into their present admirable condition (maybe with the help of Carr's?).

He was a county magistrate for the Wirral division, having qualified on the 30th June, 1884, Mr Eddowes passed in 1899...so did John Carr and Stanton Eddowes ever work together? That we cannot be sure... one thing we are sure about, is that this is a lovely corkscrew and most likely the only one in the World stamped like this... (please see all photos)
