Fabio is a stunning pair of vintage silver plate grape scissors
This type of utensil would have been presented at the table after the main meal with the fruit selection with desserts.
His front as an engine turned design in a hammered effect, his fever is in a smooth plain finish.
His blade had a serrated edge
His marking in the reverse reads HA EA FA EPA which is an unusual combination of letters. Atkin Brothers of Sheffield; HA, EA and FA are Harry, Edward & Frank Atkin
Fabio Dates 1885
He has some general wear to his plating but is in a good condition
