This fabulous old Nutcracker would have been sold as an "On-board Souvenir" on the Shaw Savill Liner SOUTHERN CROSS back in the 1950's-60's.The Ships Wheel is missing one spoke which I am sure can be replaced. Otherwise the condition is very good. To "crack a Nut" you spin the wheel out..insert the Nut....spin the wheel back back again ....and CRACK!. Bowl diameter is 7 inches.
