Description


These exceptional antique Edwardian sterling silver asparagus server tongs have a rectangular rounded shaped form.


The surface of the blades are embellished with a impressive bright cut engraved simplified scrolling leaf decoration with a suspended leaf festoon accented with a central floral motif.


The plain tapering handle is embellished with an applied reed bordered stylised bud motif, reflecting a classic King's shape design.


The interior of the blades, stems and bridge are plain and unembellished.


The pinching action of these sterling silver asparagus tongs is guided by a plain hallmarked cylindrical support to the lower portion of the blades; this hallmarked silver dowl indicates the high quality of the piece.
