A unique vintage escargot pick holder and six picks.
The decorative holder has a wonderful snail carved from horn.
The snail is fabulous- the detail of the eyes and antennae and shell are realistic and artfully depicted.
A small horn cup holds six picks with teardrop horn tops, the cup is round inside and has eight sides on the outside.
The cup and snail are screwed from the underside to a beautiful hardwood base with natural bark edges.
The carving is meticulous, the horn has a beautifully polished finish, the base is as beautifully finished as the horn.
The base measures 6" by 3", the cup is 1.75" high with a diameter of 1", the snail is 4.5" by 1" by 1.25" high, the picks are 3&5/8" long.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear, really pristine.
A rare and unique carved horn escargot holder and picks.
