Dorothy Langlands is a fantastic early English female silversmith. She took over her husband's shop (upon his death) in 1804 and kept it going until her retirement in 1814. These tongs are a wonderful example of her work. In the fiddle pattern, they are unadorned so they are compatible with any table setting. And their use should be expanded from just sugar cubes. These would be great for that veggie tray, olives cheese cubes!.
Another bonus is that these are not monogrammed! Hallmarked for Dorothy Langlands, Sterling and New Castle. What we don't have is a date mark so we only know these were produced between 1804 and 1814. They are 5 3/4" long and weigh 33.5 grams.
Based on customer preference, we only lightly polish our silver.
