From a 1903 issue of Harper’s Monthly Magazine
The YANKEE Cork Puller Should be in Every Home
DON’T LET ANY WOMAN STRUGGLE with a corkscrew and risk cutting her hands to open tightly corked catsup, olive, pickle, medicine, or any other bottles.
THE YANKEE is screwed against upright surface ; Icebox, Sideboard, Door Frame, or Wall.
IT’S ALWAYS THERE. No hunting for a corkscrew, always ready to draw the tightest cork from any bottle. It never slips, never breaks the bottle.
Hold the bottle in position. Raise the handle and the screw enters the cork. Lower the handle, the tightest cork comes out, clean and whole, leaving no broken bits in the bottle, ad it is automatically discharged from the machine.
THE YANKEE CANNOT BREAK. Considering that this cork puller is practically indusestructbil and cannot get lost, you must realize that while its possession may be a luxury its purchase is eurel an economy. Settle this problem for a life time by ordering to-day.
