The grand, old-fashioned "Kings" pattern decorates these elegant silver plated tongs from the Pennsylvania Railroad. Made by the Reed & Barton Silver Company, they are the sought-after claw style, rather than shell shape.
SIZE is an impressive just over 4.5 inches long.
On each side, intricate scrollwork rests atop a flat base with the PRR keystone logo centered at the top. There is little to no wear apparent anywhere on any part of the design.
Inside one arm is stamped REED & BARTON . "Kings" is shown and discussed in "Silver At Your Service" by Dominy and Morgenfruh, who confirm that the Pennsylvania used this pattern.
Designed to grasp cubes of sugar, the claws are wonderful with NO damage, NO twists or bends.
These are ready to join a better collection of railway onboard dining car memorabilia, from the days of luxury train travel.
