Description
Stunning large rare French 950 standard solid silver serving tongs. They are hallmarked with the Minerva head mark and the makers mark of V Bovin registered as working in Paris c1897. I would date these to c1910 having a very neoclassical Art Deco design. They are broad and sprung so they can pick up several asparagus spears in one go, or sandwiches etc... They are in super condition being free from dings splits and repairs, the hinge could perhaps be a little stronger but they work fine and spring back open after use. They measure 4.25 inches (11cms) wide long by 3.75 inches front to back and weigh 149 grams. Very interesting seldom seen examples. Weights and measurements are approximate.
