Beautiful and decorative Antique Sterling Silver Tete-a-Tete or Bon Bon Tongs, with a most charming French fleur de lis at the end.  Lovely to use for presenting petite bonbons, but more often used these days to pick up a luxury sugar cube for tea.  

Tete-a-Tete means "face to face" in French, it meant an intimate time with just one other person.  Special Tete-a-tete tea and coffee sets were produced in the late 1800's and 1900's, these little nips were of a smaller scale to accommodate the small sugar bowls for these little sets. Marked sterling inside, has a classical design of scrollwork on the end. Delicate and feminine, a beautiful addition to your collection.

  • Measures 3-1/8" l.
