Dressmaker’s scissors measuring 14cm, which classes them in the category of laundry scissors. They represent a hare and have gilded handles. On top of the many operations needed to make scissors, gilding involves placing a varnish on the parts which will not be gilded, which is later removed.

These scissors come from a vintage stock and their pairing marks are different from those found habitually on our scissors. They are signs marked with an awl rather than legible numbers.

Pairing marks are an important sign for determining the quality of a pair of scissors: it is a sign found inside each of the blades (see photos). It indicates that the two “blanks” making up the scissors have been paired and adjusted from the start of the process.

Presented in a Sajou box and decorated with a Sajou ribbon.
