French Silver Scissors by ‘Maître Orfèvre’ Ernest PROST in the distinctive Art Deco style.
A very dainty item to add to your Clambake table in the summer or the spring!
The scissors feature distinctive Art Deco paneling on the handles. The cutting part represents a beautiful rendition of a claw perfect to help you enjoy either crabs or lobster.
There are not a lot of items like that one on the market, hence for once we strayed from our beloved older silver to wander into the Art Deco years!
Width given above is taken at the handles.
The Hallmark is ‘Minerve’ 1 -1st title -1919-1932 – Paris
The Makers Mark shows the mark used by Ernest PROST with both his initials divided by a gaiter topped by a star. His offices were located 7 rue Reaumur in the Marais part of Paris.
