Silver Asparagus Tongs – Serve Your Asparagus w/ Downton Abbey Elegance
Historically, asparagus tongs of this style were intended to be part of a guest’s place setting and each guest would have had their own pair of asparagus tongs to serve themselves. Today, few people, even those enjoying Downton Abbey Dining Elegance, set a table that formal.
These are perfect to use as a serving piece and would go well with the Asparagus Server w/ Sauce Boat we currently have available.
These tongs measure 4.5″ x 1.75″ and are marked ELKINGTON PLATE w/ the company shield stamp and the M in shield date mark used in 1948.
Our basic policy is no consignments! We are making an exception for a number of Elegant Dining pieces from the collector who also has the pieces offered in the Coined – When Silver & Coins Are Joined category. These pieces will not be in Shops At Fayrehale – They will remain in the collector’s possession until sold.
