$110.00

A pattern identified with Whiting, "Le Cordon" originated otherwise, as evidenced by this pair of tongs stamped "Ball, Black & Co.," and with an "M."

Dating from the mid 19th century, they are coin silver and large (suitable for ice), measuring 6 1/4" long and weighing 1.9 T. oz.

The "knot" pattern appears on each arm, with the added embellishment of a shield on one. Intended for a monogram, this area remains plain although there is a feathered script "C" engraved on the 5/8" wide arch.

The 1 1/4" by 3/4" grips are spoon bowl form.

In perfect condition, these show no wear or damage, and have a rich patina. They are without cracks, bends, nicks, or mars.
