Hi,

These are nut-picks.

Sharp-pointed tool used for digging the meat from nuts and also useful when eating lobster, crab meat etc.

Thank you for your attention to my question!
I am absolutely sure that these appliances have nothing to do with lobster appliances.

Nuts, well, maybe ...

Maybe someone from the old-school Englishmen will tell us the original name and purpose of these unusual products?

Conclusive proof. The case in your picture shows that this is a set by Walker & Hall. This is an extract from a Walker & Hall catalogue from 1901.
