This elegant, handmade piece, crafted in silver and brass is a functional design featuring an antique sixpence as well as ‘Opulence for a Sixpence’ and ‘Squeeze Me’ engraved into the silver.

The artist, Bryony Knox, draws her inspiration from a love of storytelling. Her verity of purposeful artwork is brought to life using techniques such as repousse and chasing, often with enamelling or gilded detail. Her handmade work sparks the curiosity of the onlooker with her figurative silverware. Once the object is held, unexpected movement, colour and texture are discovered and dual functions revealed.

These stylish automated tongs can be used for ice, sugar and olives. Whether you have a nostalgic affiliation to nursery rhythms or are just looking for a unique addition to your home, this piece is an ideal enhancement to your tea set or your cocktail cabinet.
