The sprung Sugar Tongs have shaped arms decorated with bright cutting and pretty oval grips. The circular boss, where the arms are joined, is engraved with a set of contemporary script initials and the inside of both arms are well marked. It is unusual to find this design in sugar tong size, as most are of the larger asparagus serving size.

Length: 5.25 inches, 13.13cm.
Width: 1.5 inches, 3.75cm
