This is an unusual shaped pair of fiddle pattern tongs. By this time, Fiddle pattern was starting to become a commonly used shape. This pair have a semi-circular shape cut out of the sides of each of the arms. I have not seen this style on any other tongs. I guess there was a little experimentation being tried out - and why not? The monogram is engraved to the inside of one of the arms.
