Rabbit embroidery scissors
£22.50

Nickel-plated steel embroidery scissors from France in a classic rabbit pattern. Like the stork, the rabbit is an ancient symbol of fertility - think of its paring even to this day with eggs, easter, and the celebratory rites of spring - so it's probably this scissor design too shares a similar maternal reference and origin. From small workshops in the town of Nogent in the Haute-Marne region of France - a place known for its cutlery and scissor manufacturing since the early 14th century. About 10cm overall length.
