Enterprise Cork Sizer

This Cork Sizer was made by the Enterprise Manufacturing Company of Philadelphia, PA. Marked on the side of the item lists the patent date of August 7, 1867. Corks were used in most of the liquid prescriptions and medications that were made and filled would have been sealed into glass jars using a cork. Corks came in a number of different sizes based on the size of the neck of the bottle that they would have been used in. A cork would have been soaked in water for a few minutes and then put into the sizer to reduce it to the necessary size and placed in its bottle to dry and expand creating a waterproof seal.
