This is a set of 6 French vintage stainless steel snail tongs also called pincers, which serve to hold the snail shell while eating its contents. These were bought at a traditional French brocante market and would compliment some of the other escargot tableware pieces in our website shop including plates, forks and shells. Whilst these unusual tongs where originally used in France to eat the delicacy escargot they would also be useful little tools for eating other types of seafood making it easier and less messy. These are in a good used condition and are marked as 18/10 Inox. Inox is the French for stainless steel and 18/10 refers to the standard of the steel; this is a higher quality steel as opposed to the 18/00 steel often found in vintage cutlery.  All the items we sell are used or vintage and will show signs of a previous life, this is part of their unique French shabby chic appeal. As such if you looking for something 'new' then this is probably not for you. See our website vintage brocante shop selling over 300 unique, vintage and up cycled French finds for your home and garden including more escargots pieces, all sourced from markets across France.
