click for more pictures for item 1779f
At 4 3/8" long and weighing nearly .7 T. oz., this pair of sugar tongs are the smaller of two versions offered in Gorham's "Chantilly" line. They are also old, stamped with the Gorham lion, anchor, G, along with the word "Sterling." They carry the retail stamp "J.A. Merrill & Co.," "Portland, Me."
The grips are decoratively detailed and especially appealing.
The piece is in mint condition and without a monogram or removal. They are without wear or damage, and have a finely finished surface.
