For What It’s Worth

The pictured implement was recently brought in questioning its purpose, age and value. Marked “Made in Sweden” from the early cocktail era, 1920’s, its an olive picker! Pushing the plunger opens the three prongs which grasp the olive ready to drop it into the appropriate libation, probably a Martini! Silver plate; value around $75.
