These are a rare pair of Georgian 18th century sprung sugar tongs.

This particular design was only made for a very short period of time.

These are a very nice example of the design, but they have had repair.  They do however work!

The central button at the top appears to have had a new central rivet and there has been repair to one of the arms.

However, if you are a collector and do not have this design in your collection then they would make a great addition.  The repair is of course reflected in the price.
