Asparagus did not become popular as a vegetable in England until the early 18th century. This popularity was due to asparagus being considered an exotic accompaniment for other dishes. Thus, Asparagus Tongs became the acceptable item at the dinner table during the Victorian era. This was due to the strict social conventions on dining decorum and formal parties which was de riguer at this time.
