That is what I was thinking. Or for the fire place, or wood burning kitchen stove

Crucible tongs; for lifting a fire assay crucible out of a furnace.
Most modern crucible tongs are made for pulling the crucible horizontally out of a assay furnace door, the tongs are flat (same plane as the handle). Those where made for lifting a crucible vertically out the top of a furnace.

I think waggler got it. I was going to guess it was for pulling iron out of a forge, his suggestion sounds right on.

I was going to guess to pull clinkers out of a coal furnace.
On the other hand--adjust the coals in a forge

Here is a picture of a new crucible charging fork for a modern horizontally accessed assay furnace. I'm pretty sure the one the OP has is an antique crucible charging fork used in a furnace that loads from the top.
