Los Castillo Mexican silver “tulip with beading” Serving Tongs, des no 140

on Mar 28, 2020 in archived

A refreshing break from classic pieces of jewelry these vintage Los Castillo sterling silver serving tongs are so well-made and their design so reminiscent of classic Georg Jensen creations, they look comfortably at home among the rest of the collection at One Good Eye Silver! Shaped like tulips with hand-chased details, one of the tips is flat and the other is slightly concave. Slender and elegant, the arms are adorned with a graduated row of silver spheres like droplets of morning dew on the stem of a garden flower…
