A magical and rare set of Napier "Eight Little Piggies" cocktail or hors d'oeuvres picks, still in their original box. Such a neat set. Each pick is surprisingly heavy in weight (the big is a heavy cast metal) with slender pointed picks you can put your martini olive or appetizers on. The set includes 8 picks. The texture/detailing is simply incredible, from snouts to their curled tails. Napier also made these picks in a "Mice" shape and also came in a gold-plated tone. The pigs are less common (as is the gold-plated version). Truly a lovely and unique set. Why not spear your martini olives with these gorgeous vintage picks?!?
Condition: Excellent condition. They appear to be NOS (new old stock) and unused. The box shows signs of age/wear, not from use, but purely from time, see photo for reference. Beyond age, this set is in great condition.
Hallmarks: The box is hallmarked "Eight Little Piggies" "Individual Servers for hors d'oeuvres" and "Napier #X317
Measurements: the picks measure 3 1/2" in length Cheers!
