The Hercules Nutcracker, Germany

A simple, clean-lined classic nutcracker from Westmark of Elspe. Made of aluminium, coated with a food safe enamel, turning around a hardened steel pivot. Still cast in the original post-war dies, these are somewhat anachronistically, albeit charmingly, marked W.-Germany. The name 'Hercules' denotes the brute strength of this simple tool. 150 x 33 x 15 mm.

£7.50 (Ex Tax:£6.25)
