I have been off island for several days, and made it back yesterday, and the post office box was in overflow…
Literally, there was a little note in my box that read, “OVERFLOW.”
A nice little collection of corkscrews:
A 1914 Sommers patent with advertising for the VENDOME HOTEL.
A Gottfried-Krueger type, but with blank celluloid (non) advertisement–marked PATENT PENDING on the side of the handle.
the Two PAT PENDING openers mentioned the other day; one with pie crimper
And, of course the Moses Hawk patent, also mentioned the other day…
Now, how can we get even more antique corkscrews to get my post office box overflowing….
