Here is a true pair of 18th century, blacksmith forged, New England classic American Pipe Tongs. The simple but functional form is original throughout including the "penny" flattened tips, both dampers, pick, and spring mechanism.
The surface is "as found" and never burnished or cleaned.
This is a perfect addition to your pipe box or early iron collection measuring 17" long.
