This is a very unique handmade Georgian silver ice tong bangle, it's regarded as a celebratory piece, which has the names of the Lawis family and when they passed away, we have been trying to trace any decendnts of the family for the past 5 months with no success, so if anyone has any information please contact us.
The historical hallmarks for London c.1785 have been retained and are visible on the inside edge of the bangle. (ref SP2458).
This bangle began life in London c.1785 as a pair of silver ice tongs, this bangle has been handcrafted using the complete set of tongs.
A lovely Birthday, Christmas, Christening, Wedding, Confirmation or any celebratory present, or a “to me from me” treat!, quite unique and snazzy, with oodles of history and a major talking point!
The diameter of this bangle is 6.5cm, slip the hand through the bangle, but if need be the bangle will unlock to allow the hand to pass through, simply slide one of the tong bowls over and it will unlock, once the bangle is on your wrist just slide the bowl back into the locked position.
Handcrafted using only hand tools on the Isle of Anglesey in North Wales :-)
The bangle is presented in an Oak wood case, and has the assay office details and date printed on the inside the case.
This item will be well packaged for posting.
Ideal for both men and women.
