|Description: A pair of metal curved ice tongs with a handle. The tongs form an 'x' shape with a handle at the top. Lifting on the handle causes the tongs to close. The handle is 14 cm and 1.5 cm convex in shape and attached to the tongs with a 5.5 cm 's' shaped hook on one side and a twisted wire hook on the other side. |
Items belonged to Fred Nogas which he collected over the past 50 years. Fred was originally from the Niagara region and some of these tools belonged to his grandfather who had a farm in the area. Others were bought in Mississauga and various places in southern Ontario. Fred has lived in Clarkson since 1960 where he kept this collection of tools.
Ice tongs were used to harvest ice.
