Black Americana Iron Bottle OpenerBlack Americana Iron Bottle OpenerBlack Americana Iron Bottle Opener

This wall mount cast iron bottle opener has much of it's original paint. Red bow tie, black hair, white of the eyes, white stand-up collar, and brown skin dominate this old piece. There is very little paint remaining on the lips and teeth due to extensive use throughout time. There are 4 holes for mounting screws / nails into the wall; one in each ear, one in the bow tie, and one between the eyes. There are some dabs of paint from careless wall painters - they do not distract as they are mostly on the edges. This piece is a remembrance of a time when racial prejudices were somewhat tolerated in the U.S. A shameful part of our past, but a part of our history none the less. Measurements: 3.75 inches ear to ear
4.25 inches top to bottom.
