    Found a bunch of these cork pullers for Listerine. I'd never seen these before my mom and dad sad they hadn't either their in their 70's. Anyone know when these came out? I've done a little looking on the net and haven't found much.

      Very interesting. You've got me thinking.

      Neat!

      Not much on the web other than it's a vintage corkscrew and says Listerine... :S
      Could it be missing a second piece, a wooden or metal dowel to thread through the ring and help with the task?

      OK, I got the idea here: http://www.icollect247.com/itempage.php?uniqueid=13387 for looking for vintage listerine bottles.

      I googled images of vintage listerine cork top bottles, and wow! a truckload of entries on google!!
      Maybe this was just a corkscrew that was given as you purchesd the bottle.

      It's me again...
      I found this:
      http://bid.showtimeauctions.com/Rare-Lot-of-Six-Pill-Bottle-Tin-Litho-Cork-Screws_i10109784
      So maybe it was common practise to offer these little corkscrews with the medicine, pill, syrup bottles. Much like the twisty key that came with sardine cans way back in <80s
      Neat find, thanks for sharing

      I think you've got it. I don't believe that a wooden stick was used with this. Nothing I've would indicate that. I've got 13 of them I guess now I've got to find some of the others that are out there. Thanks
