Both large, at 4 7/8" long, and heavy, at nearly 1.3, T. oz., this pair of sugar tongs are a very fine example of Towle's "Old Colonial."
This is an older piece, with a reinforced arch, and decorative beading on the claw grips.
Without a monogram or removal, they are in superb condition. There are no bends, nicks, dents, or polishing wear. The finish is lustrous.
Marks are the Towle lion emblem, "Sterling," and "Pat. 1895."
