Sarah Purver is presumed to be Thomas Purver's widow. She registered
only one mark, on 23rd September 1817, as a spoon-maker. Tongs by
Sarah Purver are rare. This particular pair of tongs are also unusual
because of the octagonal bowls. These bowls are seen on Exeter made
tongs but also on some other London makers.
