Artisan vintage S&A Haddad Jezzine Lebanon cutlery in silver from the city of Jezzine in southern Lebanon, the traditional cutlery first appeared in 1770 when the Haddad family settled in the quintessential city. Its production consisted at that time of army rifles, knives and steel blade swords. In 1930, the Haddad family developed its business by creating handles with bird heads made of bones and buffalo horns. These handles were inlaid with coloured bones & brass and were applied to spoons, forks, knives, paper-knives, daggers...
The Haddad artisans are highly skilled, and their skills travel in time and make the production of these traditional crafts a family-based profession. What adds tremendous value to these crafts is this family's eye for design and style. In fact, these handicraft creations are carved in the shape of a Phoenix bird and vibrantly painted and as a proof of quality, each single piece is stamped "S&S Haddad" with the majestic Lebanese cedar. This unique traditional craft is so well regarded that it has been presented by Lebanese presidents and officials to dignitaries all over the world beginning with the Ottoman Sultans in the 18th century. These crafts hold within each piece the authentic spirit of Lebanon: History, Culture and Beauty.
