    The Charles X era is famous for the sophistication and quality of its' objects. As far as sewing kits and scissor making, the years 1820-1830, saw the production in France of veritable marvels. These scissors are inspired by the Charles X Style: the handles have mother of pearl effect handles, a very popular material of the time, and the blades are fine and delicate. Together they make a very light pair of scissors that are a delight to use. Quality scissors can be recognized by, among other things, their pairing marks: these are the signs that the blades have been perfectly adjusted from the start of their fabrication. These scissors, including the fob, are made entirely in France. It should be pointed out that it takes a dozen qualified people to make each pair. Approximately 4" long.

    These are beautiful and feel very nice in the hand. However, the blades are very flexible. I find precision cutting is easier with a stiffer blade, so I won't be using these for hardanger.

    3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beautiful but not practical., 2.9.2009

    By: Ryan (Fargo, ND)

    These scissors are a must-have for any scissors collector, but for fine work (like Hardanger cutting), these aren't the greatest. The cutting is "okay", but you won't get the sharp precision at the tip of the blade that you need for intricate cutwork in some types of embroidery.
