Identified as selling only "to the trade," meaning marketing exclusively through third party retailers, this item carries the maker's symbol for George A. Henckel & Co., "Sterling," and fittingly, it is also stamped for the New York City high end, luxury jeweler, "Marcus & Co."

Working in the early decades of the 20th century (and later absorbed into Currier & Roby), Henckel produced quality work, often in an Arts and Crafts style, as evidenced by this 7 1/8" long, weighty at 3.1 T. oz., pair of ice tongs.

The sturdy arms and the generously proportioned, cupped grips, are hand cut in a design that includes bell flowers and other shapes.

They are without a monogram or removal and are in flawless condition. There are no bends or cracks. The arch remains perfectly shaped, and the finish is rich and even, with a softly bright quality.
