These pretty little bright-cut sterling silver sugar tongs are 5 1/4" in length. They have a hallmark dating from the 18th-19th Century England, with the lion passant and duty mark. The maker's hallmark is not totally legible, it has the cursive letter "H" with what could be "G" or "C". The tongs are in excellent condition, with "JFG" monogram on the curve of the handle. There is a beautiful delicate pattern down both sides of the tongs.

FOOTNOTE: Bright-cut Engraving This elegant decoration is usually to be found on Old English pattern items, which was the favored pattern of the period that bright-cut engraving was in fashion. Bright-cut engraving became popular from about 1770, with most pieces dating from about 1775 to 1805. The technique involves facets being cut out of the surface of the silver to leave a shiny appearance.
