George Easton

George Easton of Glasgow was regularly listed in the Edinburgh duty register between 1800 and 1813. We therefore believe these tongs to be by him. Many thanks to Robert Wilson for this information.

These Antique Georgian silver sugar tongs are fascinating in that they have a very clear Edinburgh hallmark for 1804 but the style of the tongs certainly suggests a later date than 1804, more like about 1820.
