offered is a pair of sterling tongs with a shell motif on the ends. Measure 3 1/4" long. They are marked Raimond Sterling on the inside handle. Raimond was out of Chelsea, MA. and was sold in 1978. A friend's granddaughter uses these "grabbers" as she calls them to pick up her food. I think that is a perfect use for these in addition to being great for sugar, nuts, candy, etc.
