A stunning pair of silver gilt grand rococo Tea Tongs attributed to Denis Boursin, a Huguenot goldsmith.

This particular pair bear no marks but are identical to a pair bearing Boursin's maker's mark seen in the collection of a seriously dedicated Tea Tong collector.

Recently the inimitable Michael Baggott has found a third pair - identical to the previous two, but also unmarked.
