Sterling Zeilin

Over the weekend, the latest corkscrewcollectors.com auction took place, and lots of corkscrews changed hands.

I did bid on a few, and of course, didn’t win as my bids were quickly taken out by those willing to take the price to a level that was far beyond my means.

Or, perhaps, far beyond what I thought was reasonable.

Still, I sold a few, and bought one.  Yes, I ponied up for a nice example of the Sterling Zeilin dosage cup with corkscrew.

I actually have owned several of these over the years, but they have made their way into other collectors’ collections.

That said, we have quite the collection of medicine corkscrews, and it was time to put one back into the collection.

And, since I am trying to acquire a few more examples of the Zeilin…if you have a dosage cup with corkscrew with which you would like to part feel free to drop me a line.  The one that I am really after is not in Sterling.

In O’Leary amongst the others, this version of the Zeilin is pictured and described as being marked, “ONE TEASPOONFULL PARRISHS HYPOPHOSPHITES, J.H. ZEILIN & CO. PHILA, PA”

This would make for an excellent addition to the collection!!!
