In Brisbane, Australia it is:



One Thousand, Three Hundred & Fifty Seven (7nd MARCH, 2007)

My name is Paul Widdup and I live in Brisbane, Australia. I have been collecting cast iron bottle openers since 1991, It all started when I joined the Queensland Beer Can Collectors Club. As I didn't collect beer cans or tap tops, I was a bit on the outer, so a friend mentioned bottle openers, well that was the end of my free time, openers came from everywhere, flea markets, opportunity shops, garage sales and even from some off the relatives. As you will see, I have branched out into figural types of openers and pressed flat figural steel openers, have fun looking.

Above are three interesting openers, first is the RARE Allbright Tomson & Wotton LTD , next is a pressed metal vintage car dated 1911 that advertises Essex Cars and the third is a 1910-1915 nude figural lady. All I consider to be Rare.!!!


Below is a series of links that will take you names of bottle openers that start with
