treasures discovered in Vermont

While we passed on a few of the overpriced corkscrews while traipsing through Vermont yesterday, the lovely and I did pick up some fantastic items at the various shows, and antique shops along the way.

Pictures will be posted later, but there is a german figural dog pocket knife, a circa 1820’s wine carafe, a handsome apothecary/candy jar with the slightest shade of purple, a syroco police dog bottle opener, and one odd shaped bottle opener destined to the JFO meeting in April.

This morning is the Concord Armory Antiques Show, so perhaps there will be some corkscrews there–there usually is : )

Speaking of corkscrews, the aforementioned disappearing double weir’s corkscrew ended up in Peter’s hands after a late night meeting with the seller. While I would rather have it in my collection, at least it is staying in the family.

Pictures later, stay tuned.
