Fabulous antique French Napoleon III to Belle Epoque era ODIOT hallmarked sterling silver 10 1/4" asparagus, pastry or sandwich serving tongs with sleek elegant styling, engraved monogram and wonderful condition! Nothing overly frilly here, just smooth, lustrous sterling silver so they'd be easy to work into your existing fine table service. Fluted bordering running the length of the solid sterling silver piece. The French Minerve or Minerva hallmarks, the tiny number "1" within those marks designating .950 silver content (higher than the .925 standard for sterling silver). The silversmith marks are for Maison ODIOT, Paris circa late 1800s and one of, if not the, most highly renowned of the French master silversmiths. Maker's to royalty. The end of the tong marked "Odiot. A Paris", there is the silversmith hallmark but it's worn down and you can just barely make out a portion of the Odiot oil lamp ("Lampe à guile") shape. Thick, heavy old French silver with all of the elegance you could hope for!
Very good-excellent condition. No damage or repairs to note, some slight surface scuffs indicative of light use but no damage or repairs to note. See pictures for measurements.
