18th/mid 19th Century hand forged PIPE TONGS

IMPORTANT NOTICE


******** WE ARE ON THE MOVE !! ********

After years of gathering treasures with the conviction that we would never move

we are pleased to advise that we are on the move to the state of Washington to join family.

A challenge with lots of packing then unpacking and arranging once at our new headquarters,

the move will necessarily hinder our ability to ship during the interim.

WE WILL REMAN UP, RUNNING & RESPONSIVE DURING THIS PERIOD

with the same level of communication and attention our regulars are accustom to.

WE APPRECIATE YOUR PATRONAGE

and will be in full operation from our new Yelm, Washington home base shortly.


In the meantime please continue to visit, brows our myriad of treasures and

LET US KNOW IF YOU FIND A KEEPER!

We will make every effort to accommodate!

Measuring just over 15 inches in length, these slender black iron tongs should not be confused with later copies but are original and of the period. We have left them just as they came to us after decades of storage offering a pleasing natural age patina and a bit of carbon crust on the jaws from period use. Frequently referred to as pipe tongs this early utility was indeed popular among period smokers and are a favorite of modern day tobacciana collectors. A more appropriate term though may be ember tongs as the tool was in fact used in retrieving a hot ember from the hearth not only to light ones pipe but to light a candle, lamp or for any use requiring additional fire. A nice companion item on the hearth in the kitchen or on the smoking table. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
