A few years ago (seven actually) at the Just for Openers meeting, I acquired from TWJ an oversized Henshall-Murphy-like button corkscrew that had advertising for SCHLITZ BREW’G CO. ST. PAUL.
A neat addition to the collection, I was quite pleased to acquire it.
At some point along the way, however, the Schlitz ended up in another collector’s collection. And, I have been on the hunt for one ever since.
Just the other day, a deal was struck for another Schlitz to be the replacement …
There is a second version of this type of corkscrew with an advertisement for BERGNER & ENGEL, PHILA . If anyone would like to make a trade, I would love to add that one to the collection as well.
