This Weeks Amazing Find #2!

This Weeks Amazing Find Is This Antique Iron Bottle Opener!
I started collecting these vintage bottle openers after Christmas shopping for my Mom. She has a great collection that I wanted to add to. Some of the cast iron bottle openers that you find are replicas or are remade from recovered molds then crudely painted to look antique. 
Its very hard to tell the difference! 
I think that this is original due to the smoothed edges of the iron from age and good amount of rust that covered it when I recovered it from the local flea market

About The Owner

My photo
I graduated from FSU with a degree in Apparel Design and combined my love for vintage with my love for dress making in youthanizeing vintage garbs. I have always had a passion for the eras before me since I can remember. The daughter of my father who collects and restores old classic cars and my mother who filled her home with the most fascinating antiques, I guess it just seemed natural.
