$ 40

The larger of at least two sizes of sugar tongs that Durgin produced in "Fairfax," this pair measure 4 1/2" long and weigh just over .8 T. oz.

They are early production, stamped with a "D," "Sterling," "Pat'd," as well as "S.C.&L. Co." for the retailer, Boston's Shreve, Crump & Low Company.

They are in mint condition and without a monogram or removal. The arch is well-shaped and free of bends, cracks, or repairs. The claw grips remain sharply defined and are absent nicks, bends, or burrs.
