A two sized shot jigger and a bottle opener, both in reasonably heavy stainless with nicely decorated solid handles with a kinda brick pattern. Each has a marking on it which appears to be a monogram styled design with 18/8 in *teeny tiny* print underneath. When found in the bin at Goodwill I first thought, in fact, that they might have been (part of) somebody's personal monogrammed bar set, until noticing that (did I mention) *really teeny tiny* numbering under it, with the help of a magnifying glass. <groan> They are both about 6-1/2" long, and do seem to be very well made.
Anybody got a clue what I've got here, and/or who RLL is?? I'm gonna mark these as 'unsolved mystery' for a minute anyway, in case someone out there in CW land does recognize something about the logo, the pattern, or anything else that might ID them??
EDIT!! I shoulda done a little research first... <sigh> because shortly after showing these I did go off looking around the internets and it didn't take too long at all to discover two things: the 18/8 number apparently refers to the specific high quality stainless steel these are made of -- and RLL is actually Ralph Lauren. Haven't found an exact match to these two utensils yet to determine a pattern name, but that's cool -- all the more reason I'm glad I grabbed 'em! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) Mystery no more?!! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
