Ornate Antique Cut Steel Embroidery Scissors in Case
French * Circa 1890These gorgeous handmade steel scissors have an intricate pierced and engraved design in the shanks. They are all hand cut and filed.They are marked "Nogent" which is the city in France where they were made. This is a famous cutlery region and the makers that passed stringent quality requirements could belong to the guild and use this mark. They have the maker's mark as well.
They have tight blades and sharp points and cut like new to the tips. There is no rust or other damage and they measure 3 5/8" long & 1 1/2" across the bows. They are in a velvet lined leather case. That has some wear, but it's intact and the leather is supple. The case is 4 1/4" x 2".
