Acquired at the Elkhorn, Wisconsin, Antique Flea Market, this bull-faced can opener was manufactured in the 1960s by British Make. This steel can opener is a manual device, once popular for opening up tin or aluminum cans during the 1940s through 1960s.
This bull can opener is in excellent vintage condition with very little wear to it. The curled tail of the can opener serves as a handle. The delightful bull image at the front of the opener adds a playful dimension. The steel blade bears on one side the mark “British Make.”
This vintage yet functional, manual can opener would make for a charming addition to any kitchen, even if used for decorative purposes and as a reminder of how our parents and grandparents used to open up a can.
