$165.00

A particularly fine rendering of "Hizen," one of Gorham's most exotic patterns, these 4 1/2" long, .9 T. oz., tongs are in immaculate estate condition, evidencing neither wear nor damage.

A multi-motif line issued in 1880, the style draws upon Aesthetic sensibilities. The primary element of the design is a fish, possibly koi, set against a raised background suggestive of marine elements, including waves and seaweed.

The three tine, cupped, grips have textured surfaces and rich, intact, gold wash finishes that extend well up the lower portion of the arms.

The arch has a fancy, bright cut, Old English "M" monogram.

It is marked with the Gorham "lion, anchor, G" emblem and "Sterling" on the inside of one arm.
