Antique Silver Plate Embossed Bell Flower Sugar Nips or Tongs, made by 1847 Rogers Bros., the mark of the Meriden Britannia Company starting in 1862. These little darlings probably date to the early 1900's, they are silver plated. The handle features the prettiest bell flowers, the tongs end in little claws.
A perfect addition to your tea or dessert service. I love this one, it has everything feminine, romantic and delicate I cherish of the past.
