In her benchmark work on Philadelphia silversmiths, Catherine Hollan identifies "E. Borhek," the mark on this 5 11/16" long, .5 T. oz., as Edward, 1806-87. She notes that 1835-37, he was known as "Borhex."

Early Philadelphia Coin Silver Sugar Tongs by Joseph Anthony of Phila.

Offered is a fine pair of early American coin silver sugar tongs by noted Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Anthony, who worked in that city from 1783-1809 on his own and from 1810-14 with his sons.
