I definitely do NOT need another Converse patent cork puller in the collection.
I have way too many.
And yet, I stuck a deal yesterday for yet another example as it carried an advertisment that I hadn’t seen previously.
THREE RIVERS WHISKEY
BOTTLED IN BOND

H. Weil & Son’s operated from 1892 until 1906 and had brands: “Burlington”, “Cold Stream”, “Old Winwood”, “Pearl Valley”, and as shown on the Converse here “Three Rivers.”
