Crown Finial Edwardian Sugar Tongs Spoon Ends Continental 800 Silver Barley Twist Top Quality
This is a very pretty set of high quality 800 grade silver sugar tongs from the Late Victorian or Edwardian era.
The sugar tongs have spoon ends and a very unusual 3 dimensional reticulated crown finial and barley twist sides. 800 silver denotes a European manufacture, but no maker's marks are given.
800 silver is a bit less silver content than sterling's 925, but is often preferred continentally because of a higher durability.
The sugar tongs measure 5 inches long and are in very good +++ used vintage condition. A very attractive and unusual pair, making adding sugar to your tea a joy!
