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.
These scissors, including the pompom and the "S" medaillon, are made entirely in France.
It should be pointed out that it takes a dozen qualified people to make each pair.
The scissors are presented in a Sajou box. A label on the inside cover explains the manufacturing process.
