Offered is a nice set of English Georgian sterling silver sugar tongs for everyday use; these have a maker's mark of IL and Georgian-era hallmarks for London, 1814, as well as a museum inventory mark from 1966. These were de-accessioned by a Southern institution and were acquired with a number of other pieces from the same de-accessioning. This set of tongs also has a gothic initial monogram, which probably replaced an original script monogram that was erased. These tongs measure about 5 1/2 inches in length and weigh about 46 grams. Condition is very good overall, with no dents, splits or repairs. All in all a nice useful serving piece dating back more than two centuries!
