USA, Early 1900’s, Hand Forged Ice Tongs. Very heavy with incredible patina. 

Ice tongs have been in production since the 1800s. These tongs were used for transporting large blocks of ice from rivers and lakes to customers' homes.

Ice would be cut out of creeks and rivers and stored in sheds with sawdust around them to prevent melting.

Homeowners would use these tongs when placing ice blocks in their iceboxes.
