A typical pair of Scottish provincial-made tongs with curiously unidentifiable maker, in excellent condition apart from a VERY old repair (probably when made) where one of the shell 'bowls' meet s the arm of the tong. This repair in no way affects either the appearance or the function of this lovely item.
