A Set of Eight, Vintage, French Escargot/Snail Stainless Steel Tongs and Forks.
All in great vintage condition, The tongs measure approx. 16cms (6¼") long x 6cms (2¼") wide (when closed)
Six of the forks measure 14cms (5½") long, two are 12cms (4¾") long.
The tongs are slightly different from each other (there are four in one design, three in another, and one in another) so they vary a little in their shape. Two of the forks also vary slightly from the other six in shape, making them unique, interesting and genuinely 'vintage'.
The tongs are specially designed to hold a snail shell. To grip the snail you press the two sides of the tongs together to open them. Then use them to pick up the snails (escargot).
The tongs are held in one hand with the snail open-side up. You pick the snail out of the shell with the small fork held in the other hand.
The spring handle ensures the escargot is firmly held regardless of the size, as they can be slippery!
