Thank you for viewing our Store,
We have for sale an Antique Advertising Bottle with Hidden Corkscrew.
Wonderful find this turn of the century 1800s Bottle Shaped advertising corkscrew for the Anheuser Busch Company.
The corkscrew was made by the Williamson Company of Newark New Jersey and patented June 1, 1897.
Unscrew the bottle and fold out the hidden corkscrew, screw the bottle back together to form a handle for the corkscrew.
The bottle is made of nickel-plated brass with a steel corkscrew.
Why a corkscrew for beer? The bottle cap was not invented until the late 1800s by the Crown Cork Co. Baltimore and not highly used until into the early 1900s. Before the cap was introduced most all bottles had corks including Medicines, Perfumes and Alcohol.
Measures, 2 7/8” long, 5/8” diameter.
Marked, Williamson Co. Pat. June 1, 97.
Condition, very nice condition with minor wear on finish scuffs and scratches.
Please see all pictures as they are part of the description.
