Lovely Coin "Basket of Flowers" Tongs
These 6.4 inch tongs (0.78 inches across the arch) bear the mark tentatively ascribed by McGrew to Hall, Hewson & Brower of Albany NY (ca. 1846-52). The graceful fiddle form is decorated with a crisp basket of flowers motif and terminates in textured talon claws. The finish is excellent and the weight is 46 grams. There is no monogram.
