ARTIFACT: This is a great circa 1910 bottle opener and tag from Andrew O. Caswell, Bottler of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The opener, which is in the shape of a nude woman or perhaps mermaid, is connected by a chain to an oval tag with the bottling company's information. Beginning in the 1910's and continuing through the 1930's, many of the openers had a special modification added. It was a small square hole, which opened and closed the gas-powered Prest-O-Lite valves on the covers of the auto's headlamps.

VINTAGE: Circa 1910.

SIZE: Approximately 5-1/4" length and 1-7/16" width.


ATTACHMENT: Chain with round hole for attachment and square hole designed to open and close gas-powered Prest-o-lite valves on automobile headlights.

MARKINGS: G. T. & O. CO. PAT'D CHICAGO on opener.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a Breweriana collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VBJX10 VAAEX1/11 SAAEX07/04/22

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): The bottle opener and tag both show light to medium wear and small spots of tarnishing and rust.

GUARANTEE: As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
