Offered is a rare example of 19th Century silver from Riga, Latvia, at the time a part of the Russian Empire. This piece is a heavy and well-decorated pair of sugar tongs bearing hallmarks for Riga, 1881. This piece measures about 6 inches in length and weighs a heavy 56 grams or so. This example of a pair of sugar tongs is interesting in that it has a style that is distinct from Russian pieces, but is also distinct from tongs from the Western European countries. It is an attractive pair! This piece has a clear maker's mark and is engraved with a period script owners' set of initials. Condition is excellent, with modest surface wear but no splits or repairs. All in all a very fine example of Riga silver from the Russian Empire period!
