Vintage Kitchen Gadgets


Many of us vintage enthusiasts collect kitchen tools. Here are three of my favorites.



The yellow can opener is an Edlund Junior, Pat. Pending, 1920`s. The wood handled green tool is made by
 Apex. It is a sharpener, glass cutter and bottle opener. This is a tool I`d have used as I am very much a DIY woman. I`d say circa 1920`s. Please correct me if I`m wrong. The metal can opener/corkscrew is a Buckle Proof Blue Blade made by Henry Steel And Sons, Wellington, England. The corkscrew folds inside the handle. The blades and screw are very sharp.
 


I don`t use these gadgets. They are easy to find and a favorite collectible.
Thank you for stopping by,
