Offered is a very fine pair of unusually well-decorated English Victorian sterling silver fiddle pattern sugar tongs, with extensive relief engraving to the bow and both arms, down to the grips. This piece also features a nicely done period script monogram of "AT & MT". The tongs are fully hallmarked for London, 1872, and bear a maker's mark of what appears to be TH over TH. Please click on the picture to see the rest of the pictures, including details of the decoration and the maker's mark and hallmarks. This pair of tongs measures about 5 5/8 inches in length and weighs a heavy 46 grams. Condition is excellent, with minimal wear and no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a lovely example of English Victorian silver!
