This sterling silver figural boot corkscrew with hammered decoration on the boot and a bottle opener that functions as a finger-grip for the corkscrew is early 20th-century in date. It is in very good overall condition and is marked "Sterling R B Co 738 Pat. Apl for" on the base of the heel. Across the B is an arrow. This is the mark of R. Blackington Co. of N. Attleboro, Massachusetts. Blackington was one of America's premier silver makers (right up there with Reed & Barton, Kirk and Steiff). Founded in 1862, they were sold to Wells Inc. in 1967.

Shipping Cost:

Within  the USA: $6.95 for  Priority Mail.  This service comes with tracking but insurance is additional and varies with value. Registration is also an option in the USA. 

For foreign shipping: $22.50 using First-Class Package International Service, which does not offer insurance or tracking but it does offer "Registration" for an additional charge of $14.00. Registration is extremly secure and can be tracked. 

I'd advise adding insurance in the USA and Registraiton abroad. Neither is required but without them I will take no responsibility for loss or damage.

Seller accepts PayPal payments
Payment Details:

I prefer by check or money order but will accept Paypal if the buyer pays the Paypal fees on the total including shipping: 3% for US buyers and 4% for those living outside the USA.
