Silver Tea Tongs, Sugar Nips, London c.1758, William Harrison

English antique sterling silver tea tongs or sugar nips by William Harrison dating to c.1758 which is the date he first entered his mark.

In quite magnificent condition and with the most fantastic set of marks to each finger ring suggesting very little use, bowls meet perfectly against each other when closed and they retain good tension, a set which has quite obviously seen very little use over there lifetime.

They measure 120mm in length.
