Silver Sugar Tongs, Atkin Brothers of Sheffield
A stunning silver sugar tong is listed which will add a lovely ambience to your English tea set! Great for picking up the little sugar cubes and bound to fetch some attention.
On the sides of the tongs are engraved a pair of holy men holding a book and standing on pedestals. There is also a pair of English fertility symbols, "green men" just above the spoons. The Victorians and Edwardians skillfully copied medieval symbols onto their furniture and silverware.
Inside the tongs there is a full hallmark for the company and silver plate: HA EA FA EPA
