|These Fiddle design sugar tongs were made by Thomas S. Spear, working in Columbus, Georgia, (1858-). They measure 6 3/8" and are inscribed on one side "Nettie" and have a cursive monogram on the end. They are stamped T. Spear on each interior side. Good condition, with some scratches and abrasions from use, they also still have a good deal of "spring". Dating to the Civil War era, they are a nice example of coin silver from a known Southern silversmith.|
