Redlich and Company Sterling Roundlet

I visited the poop office box today, and much to my delight there was a package waiting for me.  A very large package filled with bubble wrap, which was wrapped around a little white box, which was filled with white tissue, which was used to protect a plastic zip lock bag, which encased a sterling silver roundlet corkscrew.  I love the way people pack stuff…

The item once unpacked was much better than I could have imagined.  Marked with Sterling 93, a monogram of BGA, and 1893 on the opposite end.  Then, on the side… it looks to have a small dragon/lion.  I looked at several sterling mark sites, and it has to be Redlich and Company…  There are some other possibilities, but for the moment, this is the best guess…

Now, what could BGA stand for… Bullwinkle Gregory Arbuckle?  Bouregard Gilligan Armstrong? Billy Goat Army?  Big Green Alligator? Bernard George Anderson?

Who could have owned the piece….

  1. That\’s an awesome corkscrew. I\’m still in shock though that the one time $5.00 limit Ebayer Iwascorkscrewed took this puppy for a whopping $120.00! Oh how times change.I was lining up on it for a very modest $100.00 thinking I\’d be in with a fighting chance. Oh well, great buy Josef, here\’s to the next great deal.
