Here are six silver plated nut picks marked “Reed & Barton 2” “Pat. Dec. 29, 1868”. They are in the “Roman Medallion” pattern that was designed by Henry G. Reed (of Reed & Barton) and patented on January 29, 1868. They measure 4 and 3/4ths inches in length.
Included is an antique red fabric lined box.
Nut picks have other uses! They work extremely well as cocktail picks or for canapes.. The classical design on these picks is lovely.
