Silver scissors with scissor fob & mini pin cushion

Out of stock

Lovely decorated Victorian silver-handled embroidery scissors with curved steel blades. If I imagined embroidery scissors, these were they! Almost certainly mould-cast with steel blades added, these are so pretty. I have paired them up with a simple but very attractive ribbon and scissor fob. The fob was stitched on washed unbleached linen in glorious autumn colours and stuffed with polyester wadding. They are supplied wrapped in tissue and boxed with a faux pearl pin. The scissors measure 4.5in (11.5cm) from handles to blade tip.

The story of this little treasure

The scissors were part of a lovely collection of needlework goodies bought at auction earlier this year. I have converted the original piece of stitching to create this really useful accessory. 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 these pretty scissors and I love the designs on the handles. I cannot read the hallmark, but they are certainly Victorian and beautifully made.
