A lovely Art Deco cocktail picks set by Napier. Such a lovely set that features 6 bold red cherry ball finials that rest in a silver-plated holder that has a round bowl, bold bakelite stem, and flat footed base. It displays beautifully. Why not spear your martinis in style with these vintage cherry picks??

Maker/era: Napier, 1930s

Hallmarks: The stand is hallmarked "Napier Pat. Pend." (patent pending) can be found on the underneath; the picks are not hallmarked.

Condition: Good vintage condition with noticeable signs of age. We like to be thorough when it comes to our vintage pieces, so here's a full summary:

1) The cherry picks are a different color metal than the holder. We CANNOT confirm they are original to the set as they are not hallmarked. Our research shows this set came with 3 different style picks (ones with a more ornate Swan-shaped top that was just above the cherry finials, ones that didn't have any metal above the final (so only a round ball finial) and ones like these, that have a curved single stem that sits aboe the finial. Again, we cannot confirm these picks are original to the stand. They belonged to a private collector.
2) The metal of the picks show tarnish (again, they are a different tone than the stand, which is a brighter silver-plated tone)
3) The silver-plated stand is in good shape overall. There's a small 'age spot" of wear to the silverplating on the rim of the holder (slightly bigger than a pinhead).
4) There's mild tarnish on the holder in a few places
5) The cherry pick finials are in good shape (no cracks).

In short, this set is in good vintage condition but does show signs of age/tarnish. And again, we cannot confirm the picks are original to the stand as they are not hallmarked. Truly a lovely set that has a magical feel to it. Cheers!

Measurements: The bowl/stand measures 3 1/4" tall; the picks measure 3 1/4" in length
