These tongs are a beautiful pair of double flared bright cut engraved tongs, with a concave bow. There is a lovely crest on the bow of a hawk or similar bird. They have acorn bowls and are particularly precious due to the highly recognisable but rare maker's mark with the trophy above it, as well as being marked with the incuse duty mark.
