- Quantity Available: 1
One set of ice tongs, they are rusty (light pitting if any), but a very nice set of what looks like hand forged by a blacksmith. The metal is 5/16" thick by 3/4" wide, will open up to 17-1/2" in between points and 22-1/4" outside to outside. If I remember right, this is about the size and type of tongs used by the iceman when he delivered ice to your home, he would walked into your kitchen and put a 25 pound block of ice in your icebox. He would hang the tongs on his belt or pocket while he collected your money or a prepaid ice coupon or wrote you a charge ticket for your block of ice. I have also seen them used in ice houses an ice plants to handle and drag large blocks of ice. Questions welcomed.
