Just thought I'd post some more of my flat figural openers.
Pic.#1, (JFO-A-1), bathing girl, or mermaid, found clothed or nude. Marked, C.T.&O. Co, [Crown, Throat & Opener Co.], which later became Vaughan Novelty, Chicago. Patent # 46,762, issued to Harry L. Vaughan, December, 8th,1914. In 1922 you could by 250 (blank, to be stamped with your add), for $6.50. This one is stamped on the back; Manhatten Bottling Works, Milwaukee, Wis, bottlers of Schlitz Beer. Now worth between $10 and $35 each.
Pic.#2, (JFO-A-29), bottle (with stage handle corkscrew that forms the opener), designed by John L. Sommer, patent # 42,305, March 12th, 1912. This one is stamped for Pabst Blue Ribbon. It's worth between $5 and $35.
Pic.#3, (JFO-A-21), Hand spinner, made by Brown & Bigelow Co, St.Paul, Minn. This one is stamped Blatz Old Heidelberg. I do not know the patent # or date, but it's around 1915 to 1920. Valued between $5 and $25.
Pic#4, (JFO-A-45), Pixie. This one is blank, and only three beer companies are know to have used it; Centennial Brewery, City Club Beer, and Griesedieck Brothers Brewery. I don't know of the maker or patent information for it. Value is between $75 and $100, if stamped.
Hope you enjoy them,
Lumpy
