Only One Available: This is an original 19th century blacksmith tongs. Dates to approximately 1820. Tongs still open and close but does have rust. Measures 8.25" long. Would make a great addition to any antique collection!
Tongs are made of three pieces of metal — two long side pieces that work similar to the side pieces in a pair of scissors and a rivet that holds the side pieces together and allows them to pivot. In each side piece, there are three segments — the jaw, the boss, and the rein.
