This pair of folding Moustache Tongs come with a gilt metal heater that has an elaborate arm that folds out to support the tongs.

The tongs are also gilt metal with faux tortoiseshell handles. For travel they fold to pack in their silk lined crocodile case. Any Victorian Officer wanting to look he best would be pleased to have such an item to melt the wax of his moustache in order to give a superior shape.
Circa 1900.
