This spectacular pair of sterling silver grape scissors was a gift from Santa last Christmas. It is now a treasured possession and if I hadnâ€™t left instructions that I should be cremated when I keel over, it would be one of those things that I would want buried with me for some grave digger to discover 500 years hence and have him say â€œhmmm, this dude knew how to live…â€ or worse, â€œgeez, he must have had really tough nose hairsâ€¦â€ heeheeheeâ€¦ I jest, of course. But seriously, why would anyone yearn for grape scissors??? Iâ€™m not sure, but maybe the fact that they are such single-use implements? That they are usually beautifully designed? That they actually serve the purpose of cutting grapes from a stubborn bunch easily? It seems so old-fashioned, but in fact it is so brilliant to have at a modern dinner tableâ€¦it always spurs the conversation down an interesting genteel pathâ€¦ perhaps one can explain it as those who admire a brilliant vintage car instead of the raciest Lamborghiniâ€¦ At any rate, I canâ€™t explain it but I did want to show it offâ€¦these scissors are beautifully designed in a weighty sterling silver and manufactured by Tiffany & Co in the 1800â€™sâ€¦ They look great on a cheese and fruit platter, particularly when candlelit. We will be serving a lot more grapes this year!
