{Identifying Silver Grape Scissors from Sweden}

Yesterday I did show in my post the tiny, sweet Champagne grapes with silver Grape Scissors in a Rose Pattern. They also are often called Grape Shears.  
Mind you, they are actually not THAT large.
Do you see to the left where a space is cut out for placing the grapes' stem?
That way you easily can snip off a section of a larger bunch of grapes.
One person in her comment asked: 'How do you know the Scissor is meant for grapes?' This was Marianne from the blog: BiebKriebels or Library Jitters, if I translate this from Dutch. So as promised I will get back to the subject.

I learned that I made a spelling error myself, as scissor should be written in plural as scissors.
On my blog post, I've corrected that but in the URL it still shows as scissor.
English is NOT my mother tongue and overall, I guess that my English will be better than your Dutch...
Now let's look at the meaning of this silver TABLE SERVING or DESSERT SERVING piece.
In my book: FORKS KNIVES & SPOONS by Peri Wolfman and Charles Gold I found a nice mention of the silver grape shears. Read more about this Manhattan Design Guru below post...
At the bottom left you can read: One of life's little niceties -- sterling silver grape shears.
From one of Christie's auctions you can find above: A VICTORIAN SILVER-GILT DESSERT SERVICE
Just click the above hyperlink to go to the actual page.
 It shows dessert pieces like forks, knives, spoons, cheese knives, and one pair of grape scissors.

just click on above hyperlink
Now, how did I identify my silver grape scissors as being from Sweden?
You can read here: the Maker's Mark:GRWR - City Stamp: M - 3 crowns and an S for Silver and Date Letter: R9
So what does this tell us?
On page 142, of The Book: +Rosen-Bestecke (Rose Flatware) by +Johanna Gehrlein from +Silber-und-Rosen-Shop I found the marking from Sweden in the form of 3 crowns (seen in Abb. 2).
Johanna is a dear friend and her hardcover book with excellent photographs has proven to be invaluable!
Sure enough the Swedish Mark with 3 crowns and the S for silver is still being used.
Just click and scroll from link above.
The letter M I found here: Swedish Hallmarks and City Stamps and it stands for the city of Malmö in Sweden.
And my Silver Grape Scissors from Malmö in Sweden were made in 1967 according to the R9 hallmark...
This table you find from the very same link in the above City Stamps, just scroll down.

Hope this did answer Marianne's question!

      Oh, as for me I see certain blogs as reading magazines and we always learn from each other! That keeps us interested. Thank you, these are lovely and I was so happy for having found rose design grape scissors as lots of them have grape leaves as decoration.
      Johanna will find out soon as she starts her new day...

  7. Dear Mariette,
    you did a gorgeous reserarch about this wonderful little grape scissors. And I am so happy that my book Rosen-Bestecke helped you to find the reason why the little scissors bear the Sweedish hall mark. I had to concentrate my book for only German flatware, otherwise the sizw would be much thicker. So I did not mention this Swedish Maker GEWE, who developed and bought molds from Hanau and Pforzheim silversmithes. They made wonderful detailed flatware.
    But your little grape scissors is one of the nicest I have ever seen. Not only the toos is very nice shaped, I love also the little roses on it - you know I am fond to roses.Most of the grape scissors have baroque figurines on it or at least grape design. So your scissors is so perfect with the rose champagner grapes. Dear Mariette, you are a master of tablesetting - I really love your table in all designs. Thank you very much for telling us the story how you found out the informations. One can imagine now, how much work it is to make a book about 230 rose flatware patterns.
    May the little scissors always bring luck and happiness in your home and serve many sweet sweet grapes.
    Hugs and greetings,
    Johanna

  10. Nou ik voel me zeer vereerd met de uitgebreide uitleg. Ik vroeg het me gewoon af omdat ik altijd de keukenschaar uit de la pak en nog nooit van een druivenschaar had gehoord. Een schaar is een schaar, maar dat heb ik toch verkeerd gezien. De uitsparing is inderdaad handig om de steeltjes door te knippen en als hij er zo mooi uitziet is het leuk om hem te gebruiken. Bedankt voor de informatie!
    Als ik het woord sciccors hoor moet ik altijd denken aan de keer dat ik in Griekenland op het vliegveld een schaartje in mijn handbagage had. De Griekse beambte sprak het sissend uit met alle ssssssen die in het woord zitten. Heb het schaartje achter moeten laten helaas....
    Groetjes, Marianne

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Nou, dit kwam heel goed van pas om je te beantwoorden en ook tevens het prachtige boek van Johanna te vermelden. Zonder haar had ik dit ook nooit (?) kunnen achterhalen. Ja, de oplage aan boeken hier in de USA is zeker groter dan ik Nederland en mogelijk heb je het daardoor nog nooit ergens gezien. Jámmer van je kleine schaartje en eigenlijk wat een onzin om mensen zoiets afhandig te maken. Doen ze hier ook hoor; je kunt het dan wel tegen betaling in een envelope doen en naar je adres laten terugsturen. Gekke wereld en dat dankzij een paar idioten die dit voor altijd voor íedereen verknoeid hebben!
      Fijne weekend nog en lieve groet!

      Johanna's book is an excellent one for identifying hallmarks on rose silver. She's a great photographer and author.
      The photo of me holding the scissors in the palm of my hand has been taken in our front porch as it was too dark inside the home yesterday. Today is sunny again!

  13. I love to come here and visit you cause I end up learning something always and now this! First of all, this have got to be the prettiest scissors I've ever seen, PLUS for cutting grapes, never heard of it before! Thank you for all the ineresting research you did and shared with us, I am for one, amazed!
    I'm sorry I didn't explain about the scissors situation (speaking of), but I meant after you place the lattice top on the pie there's always excess 'dough' hanging all around the side, so I usually cut it perfectly around it with my kitchen scissors, lol! The piece was cut with the knife, hehehehhee...I cracked up too imagining me cutting a piece with a scissor like material...and I'm still laughing!!!!! Thanks for coming sweetie and have a wonderful weekend.

  21. Good Morning Mariette, It is always a treat to visit you, as there is always something new for me to learn. I have heard of grape scissors, but I have never seen any before today. Your little grape scissors are delightful, I can only imagine how it feels, to use something so lovely, to cut the stems of the grapes. I feel sure it would enhance the enjoyment of eating grapes.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

      Thank you and glad you now got to see such grape scissors in detail. It sure helps for snipping off a little piece instead of yanking off some grapes from an otherwise nice cheese and fruit buffet... I've seen it too often that grapes almost take flight because of their tough stems.
      Hugs and happy weekend to you!
