Very Rare Antique Gold Damascene Scissors Islamic Calligraphy Persian C1800 Nr

This genuine pair of antique Islamic calligraphy scissors measure 220mm (8.75'') long x 20mm (.75'') across at the widest and weigh 64 grams. They are known as Islamic calligraphy scissors and from the closed position it is easy to see they were also designed with a dual purpose in mind. They are damascene decorated (inlaid gold) to the pivot area as well as two small areas on the outside of each of the hollow ground blades and the handles fit together perfectly as one. They date to no latter than 1850 but they may be considerably earlier. They are in good original condition with some wear to the inlaid gold on one side (see photos 7&9) and some surface discolouration to the cut steel and they operate perfectly. A very fine pair of early Islamic scissors, with an unusual dual use, that do not turn up on the open market very often.
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me. All our items are extremely well packed to save them from damage in transit. If you are not happy with this article based on the information I have provided I will always happily refund minus the cost of any postage.
