A French Art Deco cocktail pick set in the form of a large snail worked in chrome on a mahogany base. The design is by the famed French Art Deco illustrator Benjamin Rabier, who had a side job designing entertaining barware. The twelve picks have red bakelite finials. Cocktail pick holders ("porte-piques") were once a fixture of every French bar and café. Today, they can be use to spear olives of cherries in a cocktail, or to serve small hors d'oeuvres.
  • Origin: France, ca. 1930.
  • Dimensions: 5 3/8” x 2 7/8” x 4 1/2”.
  • Condition: excellent, all original; no chrome loss.
