ANTIQUE SILVER GRAPE SHEARS

First seen in Britain during the Regency period, although now very rare from this period, grape shears were specifically designed to enable the cutting of grapes from the stalk, and were popular pieces of flatware throughout the 19th Century when correct dining etiquette was an important indicator of social standing. It was said that grapes tasted better when they were cut from the bunch using a pair of grape shears, something that we tend to agree with.
