Rabbit Sculptural Embroidery ScissorsHistorical Forgings
These rabbit embroidery scissors were all forged in the early to mid 1900's. Created from matrices no longer in existence, these carbon steel forgings were discovered in unfinished ("brute de forge") condition. Forgings back then were created by several rapid poundings rather than one big "whack" as they are today, resulting in scissors that are far more graceful and delicate. Each pair has been polished and sharpened to perfection in the "monte au moirŽ" tradition. Completed one at a time, the blades are plated with chrome, the handles with pure gold. Each pair of rabbit embroiders scissers comes in a hand-sewn leather pouch. The Rabbit scissors were popularized around 1950 and measure 4" in length.
