Peter, Ann & William Bateman

          Makers Mark  Very badly rubbed

These are George III bright cut tongs with flared arms. The bow is unusually narrow and is monogrammed. The monogram is difficult to read but I think is a very florid BFL. The makers mark is just discernable but very rubbed. The tongs are hallmarked for 1802. They weigh 7/8 oz and are 6 ins long.
