Item: Sugar Nips Description: Scroll arms Hallmark: London
circa 1740 by Henry Plumpton Dimensions: 126mm long; 42g
Comments: A fine quality pair of tea
tongs by one of the best specialist makers. A three piece central hinge is
always a sign of that extra quality. These are an early pair by
Plumpton as they bear the distinctive pre-1756 lion passant mark. Both
finger grips are well marked in the same manner.
