I use these tongs on a regular basis, for grilling, turning things etc. I remember my grandmother using them when she was frying bacon for breakfast some 50 years ago. Built to last! I wonder how many other people regularly use things in their home, such as these, inherited from family? It's quite difficult to find things today that are made in England, but if you want to find something beautiful, look no further than Glover & Smith, who make exquisite things from pewter and silver at their workshop in Wiltshire. We have several lovely things which were given to us. See their website: http://www.gloverandsmith.co.uk
