In excellent condition, the tongs have hallmarks “(eagle – R – standing lion)” with R being the date-stamp for 1888 and left-facing standing lion for Glasgow. The tongs are 4” long, 1” across the curved end and 1 ½” across the open end; Shell Dish is ¾” high, 1 ¾” across and 2” long, on three ball feet.
