This is a fabulous circa 1910 advertising moose head bottle opener from Portsmouth Brewing Company. The end that pries off the cap is a moose's head and the body of the opener is shaped like a bottle, complete with an engraved bottle cap detail at the end. 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.
Approximately 2-7/8" length and 7/8" width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Round hole for keyring attachment and square hole designed to open and close gas-powered Prest-o-lite valves on automobile headlights.
G. T. & O. CO. CHICAGO on front and PATENTED and anchor TRADEMARK symbol on reverse.
This is from an advertising collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MCJX16 LABEX4/16 SAAEX06/19/22
8+ (Excellent): The bottle opener shows mild wear, overall excellent condition.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
