Ciseaux Tour Eiffel Gold Plate with Pink Tassel
This Eiffel Tower pair of chromed embroidery scissors is a re-issue of a 19th century model. The Eiffel Tower was constructed for the Universal Exhibition in 1889. It was during this exhibition that Jacques-Simon Sajou was awarded a silver medal. No less than 15 operations are involved in their production, most of them by hand. The blades are very pointed for precision work. This pair of scissors comes with a pink Eiffel Tower charm, made specially for this model. The pink pompom was made in a soft furnishings workshop in the Saint Etienne region. The scissors are presented in a Sajou motif box. A label on the inside cover explains the manufacturing process.
