Pair of antique sterling silver handled hair tongs by W & G Neal, hallmarked
from London in 1907, the green crocodile case shows they were retailed by J.C
Vickery of London.
The case is in quite magnificent order with no bleaching by the effects of
sunlight (exactly as it would have been the day it was made).
The tongs fold down to slide into the case for storage, tongs would have been
used in conjunction with a burner to heat the steel part.
In the fully opened position the tongs measure 258mm in length.In excellent
order with just small traces of tarnish on the steel.
