New York coin silver sugar tongs, possibly Joel Sayre
Unusual and striking, these coin silver sugar tongs are 6 3/8" and in excellent condition, with no bends or dents. They have long arms with squared shoulders. There is a bright cut cartouche around a period monogram. It is marked 4 times with a script "JS". I have not located this mark but am basing my guess an the first 2 letters in the "J Sayre" mark. New York Ca 1805.
