Seller: sekula (2,735) 99.4%, Location: Libertyville, Illinois, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 263422019564 Offered for your consideration is an antique ANCHOR CAP & CLOSURE CORP. ANCHOR OPENER for bottles and glass containers, made somewhere between 1913-1928. In case you were curious, Anchor Cap and Closure Corp. was founded in New York City c.1913 and fell under the control of a holding company, Monitor Securities Corp., since at least 1918. Monitor began to add related companies to their portfolio and in 1928, at the height of Wall Street’s boom market, they incorporated Anchor Cap and Closure with other holdings to form Anchor Cap Corp. Then, in 1937, Anchor merged with Hocking Glass Co. of Ohio to create glassware giant Anchor Hocking Glass Corp. So, the humble brand that marketed this novel bottle opener a century ago evolved into the glassware giant of today! Anyways, please have a look at the photos I’ve taken and read the remaining description to decide if this vintage ANCHOR OPENER is suitable for your collection. This ANCHOR OPENER is in clean, good-to-very good condition. It measures 4 1/16” long x 13/16” at widest and is made of steel. Structurally, there are no dings, bends, or real scratches. But, as expected, there is some age darkening to the metal and light surface oxidation, mainly on the underside, which could be largely erased in a few moments with a buffing pad on a Dremel. For being close to, or even more than 100 years old, I think you’ll agree that it’s in pretty nice shape. So, as pictured and described, this well-preserved vintage ANCHOR OPENER is offered at a competitive price.
