Pair of silver-handled scissors. These are lovely, with marcasite-studded fleur de lis embellishments and beautiful engraving. They look Victorian but actually date from the 1970s.
The blades are made from nickel-coated steel. Hallmarked on the handles with a lion passant, a leopard's head (London) and a date letter S for 1973. There are also some other marks, including what I think are maker's initials (AN), a set of scales and a "925". The scissors are 4.5 inches (11.5 cm) long.
Very good condition - blades are sharp and the marcasites are all present and correct. The silver is quite tarnished but I leave any cleaning up to the buyer.
