Antique Flower Chatelaine with Silver Scissors

1 in stock

This is really two treasures in one! The embroidered chatelaine or scissor pouch is decorated with fantasy flowers worked in counted cross stitch and is lined with hand-dyed pure wool felt.

The antique scissors have hall marked silver handles and steel blades and are in excellent condition. I have added a beautiful shell button and a piece of hand-dyed silk ribbon to hold the scissors in place. A unique treasure…

The story of this little treasure

I have collected embroidery scissors for many years and now have over 100 pairs in varying age, quality, and variety. At my last visit to an auction, I bought two lots including pretty scissors and I think these are my favourites. These really appealed to me with chunky but surprisingly light handles and straight blades. I cannot read the hallmark, but they are certainly vintage and beautifully made.
