We have been making antique,vintage ice tong paper towel holders for several years and they have been best sellers.WE LOVE TO TAKE AN OLD PRIMITIVE ITEM AND RECYCLE,REPURPOSE,RENEW,RE-USE,UPCYCLE INTO A RE-LOVED ITEM!!! About 2 years ago we decided to try to use the smaller ice tongs to hold rolls of toilet paper since they weren't big enough to hold a roll of paper towels. Then we had to figure out how they could be hung,so we came up with making a shelf,from which the ice tongs hang! We make the shelf big enough to hold 2 spare MEGA rolls of tissue or maybe a roll of tissue and a can of air freshener? They have sold well for us and they certainly are unique and quite the conversation piece! This one measures 12" x 6" deep x 5 1/2" tall for the back piece. The wood is a rare patterened pine,showing both a warm and cool,greyish grain. It is stained in a rich medium brown. The old ice tongs are heavy cast iron and have a nice deep patina. This one has a strap type handle.Measuring from the top of the back drop to the bottom of a full roll of paper,it is 20".There are 2 saw tooth hangers on the back and this makes it so easy to hang the shelf holder. It is SUPER EASY to put on a fresh roll of t-paper! Just open the bottom of the tongs ,take off the wooden dowel and slide on a new roll and insert the ends of the tongs into the dowel! SO EASY KIDS CAN DO IT,TOO! THIS TOILET PAPER HOLDER COMES COMPLETE WITH A NEW ROLL OF TISSUE! OUR SET IS USUALLY CHEAPER THAN SOME PEOPLE SELL JUST THE ICE TONGS!! *****We are also happy to sell outside of the USA but shipping will be a bit more!*****
IT IS OUR PASSION TO RECYCLE AND REPURPOSE ANTIQUES INTO UNIQUES! WHAT BETTER WAY TO GIVE NEW LIFE TO OLD "DORMANT" PIECES AND MAKE THEM INTO USEFUL, DECORATIVE HOUSEHOLD ITEMS! We are seniors with only social security to live on so we have used our creativeness to help make ends meet. THANKS SO MUCH FOR LOOKING AND GOD BLESS!
