Antique French Silver Sugar Tongs in a Fantasy Gothic Style.
This charming implement is decorated in a Gothic style with cutout arabesques delicate running on the lower part of the bow or handle, while the upper part of the bowl is carved with floral scrolls and showing a Monogram featuring an F and a J.
The arms are carved with a vine spreading down to the bowls with leaves spreading out on the upper part.
The Hallmark is Poincon A La Hure (or Boar’s Head Hallmark) used for small objects (800/1000) betwen 1838 -1919– Paris.
We could unfortunately not make out the Maker’s Mark as it is nearly completely erased from the bowl.
