Large American Coin Silver sugar tongs, by New York City silversmith John Schanck (aka Schenck, circa 1798). The bend has a period engraved feathered script monogram AB, which is identical to the 6 large serving spoons I already have listed on Ruby Lane. The condition is exceptional, showing very little wear. The edges are very crisp including the bowls.
Dimensions are 6 5/8" long.
Weight is 35.8 grams.
Marks are J. SCHANCK.
Excellent condition with very little wear, all original, no repairs or alterations.
