Set of Silver Nut Picks


A rare set of vintage silver-plated nut picks

There's nothing like having the right tools for the job, and these are just the ticket when it comes to eating shell-on nuts. The beautiful picks are designed to wheedle out every last nugget of flesh from a walnut shell - always the difficult nut to dissect. They have a wonderful weight and beautifully turned, polished handles with a charming miniature walnut modelled in wood at the end of each. 

Most probably dating from the 1930s, they were made in Sheffield England, which was then the heart of the world’s flatware industry. Our vintage silver-plated EPNS (electro-plated nickel silver) nut picks are both good-looking and functional, and their renewed popularity make them a cool addition on today’s table.
