Item details

Offered for sale is an antique farmers hog tongs dated 1873.

Hog tongs were an essential tool used in the process of fastening rings onto hogs' noses; today they are often found on the 'what-is-it?' table at shows.

This neat old tool is a "Hills Hog Holder and was used to immobilize the hog's snout while the ring was applied.

After securing the snout with the tongs, rings could be inserted through the hog’s snout and closed.

This would keep the hog from rooting through farmers’ fields.

The tool, which measures 14.5" long, is in great condition, and is clearly marked "1873" and "Hills Hog Tongs
Inv #10295

This unusual antique tool was a vital aid to early rural farmers and is now an interesting antique collectible tool.
