Antique or Vintage Fireplace/Fireside/Blacksmith Tongs - Hearth Ware


This is a vintage fireplace/blacksmith tongs. It might even be an antique but I can't say for sure. I'm guessing that it's hand forged wrought iron but that's just a guess.

Measures 57.5cm long x 8.5cm wide at the widest point. There is obviously a fair degree of corrosion on it. Towards the last 10cm of the tip end it curls slightly.

Free delivery around Galway city. Other deliveries at cost. Can meet off Tuam Road and Threadneedle Road at selected times.

Postage is an additional:

€4.50 - Parcel Motel to Parcel Motel
€6.50 - Parcel Motel to your address
€9.00 - An Post Standard Post (reflects An Post rates effective 25 Feb 2019).

Could you please add a couple of pics of the head and joint, opened & closed? Does the joint measure about 3/4” square? Thank you

@Chesnut123: I've uploaded a pic of the head and joint closed. Yeah, the joint is about 3/4" thick (or slightly less to be precise; maybe 11/16" at its thickest) and as that suggests it doesn't have a completely uniform thickness as it sags a tad where the "rivet" goes in. Pic of head and joint open to follow.
