A very heavy, functional figural dog nutcracker, well made of solid brass. Circa 1900. These became popular in the late 19th and early twentieth century, when nuts came in big bags, in the shell. Just imagine, you had to crack your own! Laborious. Not allowed in movie theaters, or church services. We ship this one for free in the continental US of A!
