The less common, i.e. bigger, size sugar tongs that Whiting made in its Art Nouveau "Lily" pattern, this pair measure 5 1/8" long and weigh a robust 1.6 T. oz.

They are early production items, marked with Whiting's "lion" logo, "Sterling," "Pat. 1902," and "R'd 1902."

In superb condition, each arm retains excellent, precise detail to the lily design, which is set in high relief. The talon grips are finely articulated and without bends or cracks. The overall finish is bright and even.

There is a script "MEM" monogram on the arch.
