Length of scissors: 4.5 inches – 11.4 cm
There is a small Sajou logo ribbon on handle – the colour may vary
The scissors are presented in a folded and printed cardboard case
This pair of scissors is marked Sajou on the pivot point, at the interior of the blades, so as to not ruffle the feather markings on the exterior.
Quoted from Madame Sajou’s Diary: “The legend of storks delivering new-borns appeared in Alsace in the 1850’s, a region where this bird is very present in popular imagery. The tradition then spread to the rest of France at the beginning of the 20th century. It is at this period that scissors in the shape of a stork began to appear..
Originally these scissors in the form of a stork were not sharp at the tips because… they were used to cut the umbilical cord on newborn babies!….”
