Antique Brass & Iron Fireplace / Ember Tongs

Unavailable
Antique brass and iron fireplace / ember tongs, likely from the 19th century or earlier. Measuring about 21.5 inches long, one iron arm is stationary while the other arm swings out in a 7.25 inch arc. This hearth tool looks quite old. The iron arms, which have paddle-shaped ends, look hand-forged; one arm is slightly crooked and both arms show some oxidation and pitting. The brass handle, which has been left in its original state, is somewhat battered and discolored. Please refer to the 4 photographs for appearance and condition. Shipping / packaging will be $12.50.
