This is a Wilton Products bottle opener ca. 1940's. It hung on the wall through the holes in the ears. This one has been repaired, on the back side, behind the teeth. I am assuming, the area grew weak after having so many bottles opened with it. If you know anything about it, please share below!!

    It is very spooky and creepy, but still very cool.

    If you do a completed listing search on eBay you can find these from $20-$60. I didn't see one exactly like yours but the prices seem to range about the same unless it's a black one.

    Thanks, I have actually seen one like this but it wasn't for sale so I don't know how much it was going for. $20-$60 isn't bad for getting it for free!! I like it too much to part with it though. Thanks Again!

    Someone needs to explain the goodwill thing to me. I have found for some reason the prices going higher there than eBay. I find it so odd.

    Tho they were reproduced, this is an original. Looks to be repainted tho, so I'd put a value of $20-$30. It's a cool piece of cast iron!

    No Problem! I've been collecting these types of openers for five years. It's nice to share the knowledge with others :)

    I recently found one at a yard sale for a whole $2.! It is in excellent shape and seems to have all the original paint. It's in pretty darned great condition considering it's age. The only wear is to the bottom of the teeth and top of the bottom lip from use.
    I was so surprised to see it, and I grabbed it up as fast as I could. I had never seen anything like it, but I could tell that it was special.
