Seller: Top-Rated Seller callmemouse (1,249) 100%, Location: Orange, California, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 173903957968 Here we have a cute little Durgin Sterling Silver sugar or serving tongs with little leaf figured claws to catch whatever you're serving. I think they were originally sugar tongs for a tea service but would work great for serving cookies, nuts or candies, etc. I use my tongs when I host happy hour to serve meats and cheeses so this one with the grape leaves would be especially appropriate for that! This pattern began production in 1904 and this piece has NO MONOGRAMS. On the Handle - grapes hanging down from a grape leaf. Pinchers are firm so the silver has remained nice and strong. Measures about 3 3/4" in length. Weighs: about 26 grams on my little digital scale. Marked with the Durgin hallmark, and is also marked Sterling. Has been very lightly hand polished to retain a light patina to make the designs stand out. It's in nice estate condition considering age. It has a few scratches, utensil nicks, etc. on the cartouche on each side. No bends, it still retains its shape, but Please note that due to age, this is not a mint condition item. It has age-appropriate wear with some light surface scratches from use and polish and a few stubborn Tarnish spots. I tried to capture this in the pictures so please have a close look! I don't see any damage to any of the designs, it's just the smooth areas where wear is made more evident by the shiny mirrored finish. Please check out my other listings as I am selling quite a few antique sterling pieces including flatware and Tiffany and Co. items! I'd be delighted if you'd follow my new store! Brand: Durgin, Age: 1900-1940, Type: Serving Pieces, Style: Figural, Pattern: New Vintage, Composition: Sterling Silver
