Question Any idea what these are?

I listed these on the bay, but really have no idea what they are. Thinking glass jacks of some type,, I know they are quite old.. ideas? I might have to change the name of the listing. Lol

Glass jacks is also my guess although they might be forgers tongs.

Humans have been making stuff with molten glass for thousands of years so old jacks is a safe bet.

Default Tweezers

It's an old pair of tweezers with bakelite handles. Mostly these were used by Scientific glass blowers back in the day. I still have a pair somewhere.
They are probably about 8 inches long but were made in other lengths as well.
