Victorian sterling silver grape scissors, English hallmarks for London, 1847. From the workshop of silversmiths Charlie Rawlings & William Summers (CR over WS) whose work dates 1869-61.
This remarkable pair feature a double struck grape and vine pattern, meaning that the handles show the same amount of detail on the front and reverse. They are crested on the underside with the symbol of an upright hand gripping a battle axe.
This exquisite pair of grape scissors have organically textured handles and a substantial weight, making them very satisfying to hold. A lovely Victorian treasure!
7 1/4” (18.4cm) long.
