Something really old....

Leave it to Carolyn to come home from seminar with a bag full of treasures.  We are so lucky that she does!
These scissors have mother of pearl handles and come from the Palais Royal in Paris.  This is a complex of shops in the "City of Light," Paris.
They are exquisitely carved, highly collectible, originally part of the ultimate set of needlework tools.
They measure approximate 4 inches in length.
What a treasure!
