Pinup Cocktail Fork Earrings - Various Colors
Bet you'll be the only one on the block with these funky, one of a kind, pinup girl vintage cocktail fork earrings. These plastic mermaid pin-up girl swizzle sticks/cocktail forks are double sided with a slight etched "scale" design. The bottom of each swizzle stick/fork has a forked tail that would have been used for holding fruit or veggies in a cocktail or used as hors d'oeuvre forks. These are ca. 1950s and were made by the Soodhalter Plastics Company that opened in Los Angeles in 1949.
For all of our designs we choose wonderful vintage/antique silverplate cutlery. Once chosen, the pieces are modified and beautified by HAND; they are cut, drilled, filed and polished, etc.. All of our creations are handmade - as such no two items are exactly alike. The items in the photos represent the general design.
Dimensions: ~3 1/2" long from hanging hook and about 3/4" wide at the widest point.
Condition: Please note, this is an antique item that was once used as a utensil. As a result, there may be some wear to the silver-plate, fine scratches or marks from use. But some wear gives the piece patina and personality. We do our best to disclose any condition issues of note.
