A great pair of sugar cutters. Sugar came in a large cone in the 18th and early 19th century. These "nips" were essential in cutting off chunks, to be put in the mortar and pestle for further breaking up, thus getting the neccessary consistency for baking. Small chunks were used in the large sugar bowl that were made in the early tea sets. These are steel, 9 and 1/2" long The blades are 3' across. Early 19th. century. Condition is excellent.
