After putting up yesterday’s post regarding advertising spoons, Leon sent an email with a photo showing another version of the Hazeline spoon.
Interesting to note, that on this spoon it does have the word PATENT amongst all of the advertising like the Wah-Parilla example. The other Hazeline has the word PATENTED just under the hinge of the corkscrew.
On another exciting corkscrew note, a deal was struck the other day for a 1891 Walker patent bar screw, with a very cool advertising plate.
Now it is pretty clear that the bar screw has been repainted, and in conversations with the seller, I came to find out that it was recently painted. And, soon enough, after it arrives on the island, with a little paint remover and elbow grease, it will become unpainted.
Still, it is a really nice example of the Walker patent with an advertising plate for Quandt Brewing Co. Troy, N.Y.
Since it is a brewery piece, surely Tipped Worm Johnny is frothing at the mouth over this one. And, I am sure either a dollar figure or an offering of corkscrews in trade will be emailed in short order.
Of course, since there is a Troy connection, maybe it should be placed in the collection next to the Curleys, Hicks & Reynolds, Straits, etc….
