Marked with a lion, anchor, G, "Sterling," and "Pat. 97," this pair of sugar tongs are an early example of Gorham's "Strasbourg."
They are a large version, measuring 4 3/4" long and weighing just over 1.1 T. oz.
They are also in mint condition, have elaborate grips, and are without a monogram or removal. The design detail is free of any signs of wear, the arch remains well-shaped, and the finish has a natural, brilliant finish.
