Pair of embroidery scissors mother of pearl style - Swan model - Private Collection
This spectacular pair of embroidery scissors represents two gracious swans back to back. The handles are made from imitation mother of pearl, a material which was often used in the past for delicate sewing items. The difference with the vintage models is that ours are more solid and extremely light, making them a joy to use.
Size: 11.8cm - Sajou stamp on the upper blade.
Presented in a carboard box, the design may vary according to our stock. A label on the inside cover explains the manufacturing process.
These scissors, including the pompom, are entirely MADE IN FRANCE. It should be pointed out that it takes a dozen qualified people to make each pair.
An important detail enables us to judge the quality of a pair of scissors; the pairing marks - the number which you can see on the interior of each of the blades( you will notice the number 7 on the photos presented here). This number is different on each pair of scissors and indicates that both parts have been paired together from the first assemblage to make a perfect match. After the first fitting, the scissors are taken apart and each shear undergoes the different processing operations before being reassembled and finished.
In the 19th century such scissors would need the craftsmanship of a cutler for the steel blades and an ornamental turner for the mother of pearl work. Nowadays the distribution of the work is quite similar: the blades are still made by a master cutler, and the handles are created in our own ateliers.

The scissors are outstanding. You probably already know it from their look. There is no other alike. The quality is perfect, they cut just great.

Cut very well. Good ergonomics. Disappointing for the rather plastic appearance for the price. (Translated review)
