Tuesdays are my volunteer evenings at the Costume Museum. This past Tuesday I found a lovely pair of scissors. I don’t know the date.
It is hard to see on my phone (grrr) but I hope, on your computers (lucky devils), you can see the detail that caught my eye. The space in between the handles is shaped to look like a cross. I thought it was very pretty. I wonder if that was just a pretty decoration or if it was used in a church or if it was intended to remind the user to do their work for God. If any of you know more about this I’d love to hear about it.
