A very unusual pair of Serving Tongs made in London in 1855 by Francis Higgins

£ 850


The Tongs have very unusual shaped sides, with a domed top and slender upper section of the arms, all displaying a fiddle and thread pattern border.  The lower section of the arms are most unusually shaped with a corrugated form, pierced with ovals and a heart shaped motif.  This section is also engraved with linear designs and the top of the arched section displays a contemporary Crest.  The tongs are in excellent condition and are very well marked.

Length: 8.2 inches, 20.5cm
