A nice mid-century modern French cocktail pick set featuring a blonde wood stylized snail with a chrome shell. He's perched on a set of chrome leaves that hold the six chrome and plastic-topped cocktail picks. Cocktail pick holders ("porte-piques") were once a fixture of every French bar and café. They can be used to spear olives or cherries for cocktails or to serve small hors d'oeuvres.
  • Origin: France, ca. 1960.
  • Dimensions: 5-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 3-5/8" high.
  • Condition: excellent; tiny amount of chrome wear.
