Gilt Edge Corkscrew


Within the collection of Detroit corkscrews – both Davis and Puddefoot patents – there are an array of advertisements that appear on them.

One is marked with the patent information THE DETROIT, PAT’D JULY 10 94 and with advertising COMPLIMENTS OF MINNEAPOLIS BREWING CO MINNEAPOLIS MINN. “GILT EDGE.”


Yesterday, I ran across a different corkscrew carrying advertising for Gilt Edge.

And, given it had a fairly low buy it now on eBay, I snapped it up.


Of course, given that it carries beer advertising on it, I have no doubt I will be receiving an email from TWJ momentarily.
