4" Glasgow Lion Sterling 1888 Sugar tongs & Shell-Dish

A lovely little set of Glasgow sterling, these 4” Sugar Tongs have shell gripers and come with a tiny Shell Salt or Nut Dish. 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. A dainty and pretty set, it comes from the original family, non-smoking home.
