Tiggy & Pip
Tiggy & Pip is a vintage home décor shop by mother and son décor and interior design loving duo, Tiggy and Pip Coudray. With a shared love of all things French and vintage we opened our shop in 2011. Based in France, between Cognac and La Rochelle, we source unusual items from recent French and European history. Everyday French household items from the 1880's to 1980's which, although at one time were plentiful, are now increasingly rare and collectible. We source specialist props for films/photo shoots and interior designers. Many of our 'finds' are currently on display in a number of top New York restaurants and Hollywood apartments.

Description

A Set of Eight, Vintage, French Escargot/Snail Stainless Steel Tongs and Forks. All in great vintage condition, The tongs measure 16cms (6¼") x 6cms (2¼") (when closed) The forks measure 14cms (5½") The tongs are slightly different from each other (there are four in one design and four in another) so they vary a little in their shape. Four of the the forks also vary slightly from the other four in shape, making them unique, interesting and genuinely 'vintage'. The tongs are specially designed to hold a snail shell. To grip the snail you press the two sides of the tongs together to open them. Then use them to pick up the snails (escargot). The tongs are held in one hand with the snail open-side up. You pick the snail out of the shell with the small fork held in the other hand. The spring handle ensures the escargot is firmly held regardless of the size, as they can be slippery!
