Item ID: 1191 | Category: Antique And Vintage

Dating from late 19th Century, circa 1890 these are a superb original set of English Victorian bronze plated cast iron nutcrackers. Wonderfully well proportioned with finely detailed skull hinged top and bone handle, impressed with date mark of RD 740410. The use of registration numbers such as this began in 1884. The nutcrackers are in superb working condition and there are no defects to report aside from a few minor scuffs consummate with age, they have a wonderful aged patination and measure approx 15.5cms long. A very macabre collectors piece.
