Mr. Peanut is the iconic image of Planters Peanuts and has been on branded items since before World War One. In the 1950's Planters offered a 3 piece child's set of silverplate dinnerware including a knife, fork and spoon. This is the fork from this set. The fork is in good condition with Mr. Peanut sitting at the top of the handle in his top hat and monocle. The rest of the handle below Mr. Peanut is variegated to look like a peanut shell. The back of the handle is imprinted with Carlton Silverplate. The fork is just over 6 inches in length with sharp straight tines and the silver plate is in remarkably good condition given that it was a child's fork that is over 50 years old. Great piece to complete your set or just a nice Mr. Peanut collectible.
