Beautiful Georgian sugar nips (or sugar tongs), made by George Smith III in London between 1774 and 1785 (no date mark is present).
Stunning period design that has not been monogrammed but there is have a family crest featured at the top: out of a coronet a dexter arm in armour embowed holding a sprig of laurel. Your guests will certainly ask - it's ok to use your imagination. Having been made over 235 years ago, who can argue!
Pristine condition for their age. Hallmarked appropriately. The tongs are just over 5 1/2" in length and weigh 31.8 grams.
Based on customer preference, we only lightly polish our silver.
