Silver bottle opener

SIlver copy of old style crown cork bottle opener

This casting was done using the delft clay technique.  My first attempt using a  casting frame I have just made.  Some very minor imperfections but nothing to detract from the piece.

I wouldn’t use it to remove a bottle cap, the cap would mark and may possibly bend the silver.  Silver is just not as strong as iron.  The silver version is about 25% heavier too due to the difference in specific gravity.  Available from my shop here.  I can’t change the lettering, but I could remove it to create a space for engraving.
