"First Love” Vintage Silverware Bottle Opener | International Silver 1937 | Up-Cycled Church Key | Antique Knife
This bottle opener was created by hand by me from a vintage silver plated knife handle known as "First Love”.
First Love by 1847 Rogers Bros IS, International Silver Company, was designed in 1937 and discontinued in 1973. This is a very classic look that will bring out the best in a formal décor. The lines and beads are accented with cascading floral blossoms. The pattern is always on the list of top 25 popular flatware patterns for both sterling and silver plate.
A little bit of trivia ... also in 1937: This was one of the toughest years for dust bowl storms in the US plains.
Perfect for just about any beverage bottle. Pairs nicely with one’s favorite beverage as a gift! Check out my other bottle opener patterns!
Clean, polish, cut, smooth, bend, bend, cuss, bend, sweat, bend, hammer, tumble, patina, buff. Sound easy? It’s painstakingly difficult but the end result … beautiful and unique! You can expect to see signs of its age and prior use but that just adds to it's uniqueness!
If you have your eye on this or any other piece, snatch 'em up. In some instances I have a few of the same pattern. In other cases, they are a one of a kind! Once they’re gone, they’re gone for good!
I hope you can appreciate the unique beauty and hard work that goes into these.
