Shell end sugar tongs by John Polhamus while he worked with Henry Hebbard in NYC, 1852-1858. Six and 1/4 inches long. Marked "J. POLHAMUS" incuse and "H" in oval, 5 pointed star in oval, and anchor in diamond on the interior of the handles. Engraved "JCL" on the end. One of the handles has an old, well done, repair, thus the reduced price. Polhamus was a well-known silversmith and designer, who held several patents, and supplied Tiffany & Co.
