S. Brown Coin Silver Sugar Tongs, NY ca. 1820-50
Large coin silver sugar tongs, 6 and 5/16 inches long, by Samuel L. Brown of New York, NY, ca. 1820-50. Marked "S. BROWN" in a serrated rectangle on the interior of both handles. Engraved "HCH" in copperplate script on the exterior end and "S.R.H." in modern block letters on the interior end. A nice pair of tongs, large enough to use for ice cubes today.
