Made in London in 1802-03 during the reign of George III, this pair of tongs measure 5 5/8" long and weigh just over 1.0 T. oz.

They are fully marked on the arms for London, 1802-03, sterling, and the family partnership of Peter (son of Hester), Ann (sister-in-law of Peter), and William (nephew of Peter) Bateman, represented as "PB/AB/WB."

It has cup grips, shaped arms, and a slightly concave arch that is engraved with a feathered script "CH" monogram.

All outward facing surfaces are period engraved in a fine diamond cut and wriggle work pattern.

The pair are in in immaculate condition. The engraving remains sharp and crisp, and the finish is bright. There are no bends, cracks, nicks, or repairs.
