We do not know very much about Owen Cassidy other than that he became a Freeman in 1753. Thes tongs are delightful tongs in typical Irish style. They are dated 1769.

Tongs by Owen Cassidy are very rarely seen and pictures are by kind permission of Robert Gutsell, who runs the highly informative Provincial silver web-site.
