Sugar Tongs

Sugar Tongs

Scottish, Irish & English Provincial silver plus a few foreign ones as well

I have some interesting and unusual antique silver items for the serious collector

Please contact me via the website if you wish to discuss leeway on a price of anything listed

Multiple purchases will be treated favourably as I can combine and save on my postage costs

Among my listings will be some great collectors items, being top quality, scarce, rare or unusual.

All will be free of repairs (unless stated) and with clear hallmarks.

Items listed are usually one offs from collections  so when sold they may not be repeated, so if you like it, grab it now.

I try to keep a selection of quality items available but sometimes not easy to part with items that are hard to replace. I will also be listing items that are not Provincial but are great collectors items.

I recommend the following websites to novices and seasoned collectors alike.
