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!
