The story of this little treasure

Scissor keepers have been popular for many years and can vary in size and design, depending on the skill of the stitcher. In this example, the treasure has the added interest of a pair of Dorset Buttons. These handmade buttons fascinate me. If you would like to know more, take a look at Henry’s Buttons. The site is full of history and the gallery of original Dorset buttons is rather delicious.
