Vintage Painted Wall Mountable Cast Iron Figural Bottle Opener Clown's Head

  • $ 67.77

Description: A cast iron wall mounted bottle opener in the form of a clown's head. The bottle opener has two holes in the ear where it would be possible to insert screws through it to mount on a wall or other vertical element. The bottle would be opened by using the clown's front tooth and upper lip. The clown is off white in color. It has a red nose, a bowtie with red dots, red eyebrows, and red hair at the sides of its bold head. The back is black and has the number 495 stamped on the right side on the bowtie. The piece appears to be all original and has lost quite a bit of its paint especially around the mouth and tooth where it has seen use to open bottles. A nice and rather unusual bottle opener to add to your collection. Please carefully review the photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
