  • Vintage from before 2000

You've found vintage handheld manual can openers! Choose Foley can opener or Star can opener. Choose from the following:
*Foley: Marked "Foley, Mpls Minn, US Pats. 2190940 / 2718055. " Measuring 7.75", this Foley can opener with black plastic or bakelite handle works properly and has a magnet to catch the lid. Handle is crack-free; the metal has significant rust. See all photos.
*Star: Marked "Star Can Opener Company, San Francisco, Cal, Pat. Nov. 30 1920, other patents pending," measures 7". This all-metal Star can opener looks like it would be functional, but I was not able to get it to work (I suspect can lip sizes may have changed over the years).

Very nice tool! Too bad I couldn’t get the fork at a 1960s price, but I love it! Will no doubt use it for years. 🍖😊
