The Headhunter Naomi
Dimensions:W: 2cm (0.8")H: 14cm (5.5")D: 1cm (0.4")
Naomi is a pair of silver plate nut picks.
This type of utensil would have been presented with fruit knives at the dinner table.
Naomi’s blades are unusually shaped, with a step ridge towards the tip. This presumably allowed for quicker nut eating. The blades also have PATENT stamp on them.
The maker is John Henry Potter.
We have dated her 1900c Edwardian.
