    This was an unusual find. Not my norm in the least. I found this hall marked English silver scissors? Hair Crimper. It's an amazing piece. I would love to learn more about it. Thanks for looking

      Grape Scissors, I think.
    2. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      I think they are plate rather than sterling. Are there any other marks other than those maker's marks ?
    3. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 5 years ago
      Kevin, they look to be silver. Not plated. I did the magnet test. I believe. I got this from a silver dealer. So many thanks for your help.
    4. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      But if they are English sterling they MUST have English Hallmarks. I'd look at them carefully. If not I'd suggest you go back to that dealer.
    5. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 5 years ago
      Kevin, I will check. I think you are correct. :)

      Definitely grape scissors....you can see the vine with bunches of grapes and leaves up/down each side of the handle...and vetraio50 is right the marks shown are silver plate marks...lovely thing!....:-)

      Yes the marks are for silver plate, almost sure EPNS. I posted something with similar hallmarks here in cw http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/154067-repousse-bread-basket-silver-plated

      Very nice Lee I'm glad you said they were hair crimpers as I thought they were scissors by the look on them I sure would of had egg on my face. Again
