Description

The first one of these I found, I bought because I thought it looked AWESOME. I had no idea what it was, but upon listing it on here, a buyer kindly informed me that it goes by the name of "The Little Giant" and he said it was a nutcracker. I did some research of my own, and while it does work for cracking nuts, it mostly appears to be regarded as a citrus squeezer!

The fact is, whatever you use it for, it's amazing to look at, and extremely rare. As rare as these things are, this one is especially rare. The wood handles are in amazing condition, the hinges have practically no wobble, and the faceplate is beautifully engraved with "The Little Giant" Patent May 3, 81 (That's 1881.)
