Fabulous antique French Napoleon III to Belle Epoque era sterling silver 10 1/8" asparagus, pastry or sandwich serving tongs with sleek elegant styling including raised medallions with interlaced monograms & acanthus accents! Nothing too frilly here, just smooth, lustrous sterling silver so they'd be easy to work into your existing fine table service. Raised silver medallions on each side of the handle, foliate accents top & bottom and, I can't quite be certain but, it looks like the monograms are "PF". I simply have not been able to find the small French Minerve or Minerva hallmark but we're sure these are sterling. A tiny lozenge shape silversmith mark is there, you can see the diamond outline but cannot make out any initials or markings that would lead us to the maker. Thick, heavy old French silver with all of the elegance you could hope for!

Very good-excellent condition. No damage or repairs to note, a slight surface scuff or two and a bit of tarnish visible. See pictures for measurements.
