Unusual vintage spring loaded tongs or nips, thought to be silver plated. The underside of one of the bowls is impressed FF Patent 12341 but as yet we have been unable to find any information on it.
There is a little wear on the silver plate (which we have tried to show, with limited success, in the photographs). Otherwise, the piece appears to be structurally sound.
The tongs measure approximately 5.5in in length. Exact age unknown but believed to date from the first part of last century.
