A very fine pair of George III Snuffer Scissors made in London in 1809 by Abstainando King.

The Snuffer Scissors are of typical form and the snuffing box is beautifully engraved with a zig zag border. The bright cut crossed branch cartouche contains a contemporary Crest. The arms are decorated with gadrooning and the boss and finger grips are decorated with reeding. The Scissors are in excellent condition and are very well marked in the Snuffing box. Abstainando King made some of the finest Snuffer Scissors during this period.

Length: 6.75 inches, 16.88cm.
