We have called those embroidery scissors Langres, a town which, before Nogent, was one of the centres of cutlery and scissor making in France. Denis Diderot, one of the great philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment was born in Langres, his parents were in fact.... cutlers!

These scissors are extremely fine with very pointed blades. The golden handles are comprised of a floral motif with delicate pearls placed on the "eyes".

Length: 9.5cm. Weight: 20g.

Presented in a Sajou box. A label on the inside cover explains the manufacturing process.

As with all quality scissors, these have traces of pairing: before dipping the steel, the blades are perfectly adjusted a first time to "make a pair". They are marked, generally by a number (here, it is the number 2), as being two parts of a precise pair of scissors. They are then seperated before dipping, which gives them their hardness, reassembled and readjusted. The pairing marks are placed on the scissors hinge so cannot be seen when they are closed.
