    George, Twin, US, and bare-bottomed little boy brass thing.

    Not much to go on, I know. Stamped brass, obviously broken off from something longer. This piece is about 1" long x 1/2" wide. Found at a house tearout so I don't have much context.

    Wonderful! I suspected as much (I already have two complete tongs) but didn't know how to search for that given the few words that were on it.

    Last time I posted one, it was called a "sugar cube tong", even though it had a candy company's name on it... is chocolate tong a more accurate name for these things?

    Most of those were advertising tongs that came with the box of chocolates. Others came with candy of different sorts. It wouldn't surprise me if the same advertising came with boxes of sugar cubes.

    Ahhh, so THAT is what that bare-nekkid little boy is doing. Flying candy around in a box pulled by birds. Makes perfect sense.
