Dating to the earlly 1900s may I offer this pair of silver tongs - sugar tongs to be exact. With turkey claw grips, the design on either side is floral with sinewy tendrils - very much an Art Nouveau influence. Condition is very nice with a mellow patina to the silver. Tarnish is present as I have not polished the tongs at all.
