An early example of Whiting's "Lily," this pair of 4 15/16" long, heavy at just under 1.0 T. oz., tongs are marked with the company "lion" logo, "Sterling," and "Pat. App. For."

"Lily" is an enduringly popular, Art Nouveau pattern that essentially set the standard for this floral interpretation after its introduction in 1902.

Absent noticeable polishing wear, this pair show the design to full advantage, retaining all the fine flower and leaf elements for which the line is known, as well as the scales and pointed tips of the talon tongs.

Flawless in every regard, and never monogrammed, these have a rich, even finish.
