The bottle opener auction lot arrived today, and it arrived safely–all wrapped up together as one lot, in bubble wrap, in a box.
And, after carefully removing the tape, and unwrapping the contents, the Zeilin looked to be in nice shape, but with a fair amount of tarnish.
With a jar of Wright’s Silver Cream at the ready, I gave it a quick polish.
Marked with S. Cottle’s makers mark, STERLING, and 10, it is a lovely addition to the Zeilin collection.
The embossed one on the right is also marked for S. Cottle, STERLING and 11.
If you have a dosage cup corkscrew with which you would like to part, I would love to add a few more.
Drop me a line!
