George Collins registered his first mark on 6th October 1800 as a small-worker. He registered a second mark on 28th January 1804. The first mark was in an oval, almost circular punch and the second was in a rectangular punch. There is nothing unusual about these tongs. They are very similar to many other antique Georgian silver sugar tongs.
