A rare piece of early Cork silver. A plain style pair of antique sterling silver asparagus tongs (or chop tongs) with a corrugated inside surface to grip the food. Very simple and clever manufacture that would suit either a left or righted person. Weight 122 grams, 3.9 troy ounces, Length 25 cms. Each side is double stamped with the initials “IH”, probably for the Cork silversmith John Harding. Circa 1730-1740.
These antique silver tongs are in good condition with no damage or restoration. Makers mark only. There is a small superficial fault on one side (see photo of hallmark) which was probably in the original manufacture

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
