ashton (?) bottling co.

the codd gripper corkscrew thingy arrived today. and, while there is no maker’s mark / patent / registration number on the piece, it is marked THE ASHTON BOTTLING Co.

Well, mostly it says that. It could be ASTON or ASHTON, but either way, it is a really neat corkscrew that clearly dates to the days when Codd stoppers were still in use.

RL’s birthday is today… Happy B-Day wineleopard!!!!
