    I found these with a bunch of very old clock parts. Could be a pointer or some type of hand? Would seem odd to carve tweezers out like that but still pretty cool.

    Tongs is probably a better term.

    That would be a better term. Someone spent a bit of time shaping them anyway. Heres a better pic of the tips

    Being so decorative, maybe they were for ice cubes?

    That would be my guess... Sugar cube tongs that someone repurposed.
