Nine fun advertising cocktail spoons with corkscrews
A fun collection of 9 advertising cocktail spoons each with a corkscrew.  I researched most of these and some have a very interesting history as follows–from top to bottom in photo:

1– The Town House/Los Angeles, Calif.---The Townhouse first opened in Venice, California (a suburb of Los Angeles) in 1915.  During prohibition it operated the Del Monte Speakeasy (illegally, of course).  It was considered Los Angeles’ oldest and most venerable watering hole and still very much in operation today. 
2--Brown & Bigelow/Remembrance Advertising/St. Paul, Minn/Style No. 63-707 — Brown & Bigelow was founded in 1896 and is still very much in business today selling promotional products through a network of sales executives throughout the country.
3 – Price-Pfister – Prince-Phister is a manufacturer of bathroom and other plumbing fixtures.  It was founded in 1910 by Emil Price and William Pfister.  Today it is a division of the Stanley Black & Decker. 
4 – Happy Bungalow /Dine and Dance/Chicken and Steak Dinners/10 Miles East of Missoula /on Butte Hi-Way — Probably from the 20's-30's.  Matchbooks from this Happy Bungalow on Butte Hi-Way are also collectible. 
5 – Goldie - Klenert Co. Wines & Liqours/Stockton, Cal.  In 1909, Goldie partnered with William W Klenert and it survived until 1915, when state Prohibition forced them to close the doors. Goldie and Klenert then moved to Stockton, Cal. and took control of Geo S. Ladd & Co., continuing there until 1918.
6 – Good Old/Rainier/Beer/Hanford Bottling Co./The Home of/MIKO/Beverages/Phone 45 – There is a Hanford Bottling Co. still in business today in the San Joaquin Valley in central California.  It appears to bottle mostly soft drinks, e.g. Coke, Pepsi, etc.
7 – Lamer Hotels  /Salina and Hays in Kansas  — although the Lamer Hotel in Salina seems to be gone, the building that housed the Lamer Hotel in Hays appears to be the Empire Bank today.  The Lamer Hotel in Hays opened in the 1930's and was built by C. W. Lamer.    
8 – Ventura Laundry/ Phone 2141 – There is a Ventura laundry in operation today in Ventura, California, but probably not the same business.  
9 – A Stirring Message/To A Good Mixer/ Ken Carey /Olean, N.Y. – No information could be found for Ken Carey of Olean, N. Y.

I consider these pieces to be in overall very good to excellent condition with varying degrees of wear consistent with age and possibly some use.
