These tongs are dated them at around 1775.
They are of a very unusual style with no piercings to the arms & the
lovely pattern of circles. Common with many of these cast sugar tongs, they have
the engraved Adam style stylised leaf pattern at the top of the arms.
They have no repairs, making them of particularly high quality, especially
looking at how thin the bottom part of the arms is. A very fine pair of
antique Georgian cast silver sugar tongs.
