Rare Victorian Silver Hair Tongs Spirit Heater/Warmer

A very ornate late 19th-century (1892) Art Nouveau sterling silver antique hair tongs heater.

The outer casing is made up of repoussed and chased sterling silver. The inner brass box contains the heater elements. 

On the top of the silver case, decorations of a pair of half ram/human heads, and sea horses flanking a central heart-shaped vacant cartouche.

The interior consists of a pair of pop up hinged stands on one side. The other side - the spirit burner, two burner wicks (the wicks are still present) and a screw top cap. 

All of its components work properly and it is a complete set.

It is free of  any monogram or crest, and no erasure.
