Silver Biedermeier grape scissors.
Beautiful and rare (see photo book B.W.G. Wttewaall, Nederlands klein zilver) Amsterdam silver grape scissors.
Complete hallmarks; year letter 1867, office letter A for Amsterdam, content stamp 833/1000 and master stamp J.A. Lintveld who was active for a relatively short time.
These grape scissors have a very beautiful, modest decor without the often somewhat faint engraving which became common in the late Biedermeier period. The finger grips are finished with facets, the 2 arms of the scissors each consist of 2 C-volutes. The scissors are a relatively heavy 65 grams which is seen in the thickness of the silver.
Including cardboard box of the antiquarian jeweller Ruiten where these grape scissors were once purchased.
L. 16.3 cm.
