Lot 0069
  • Title: Art Nouveau Scissors, Letter Opener Set
  • Maker: E. J. Cadigen
  • Origin: Germany
  • Date/Period: 1880 to 1910
  • Materials: Steel, Brass
  • Size: Total length, 10 1/2 Inches

    This consists of three items. A pair of steel scissors, a steel letter opener with gilt handle, and a brass sheath to hold the other two items. The only signature is on the scissors, "E. J. Cadigen, Germany." Each of the three is decorated with lovely designs in relief, and each of the designs varies from the other two. So, it is possible that they were not all part of a single set originally. But they all fit extremely well together now.

    Please note that this lot has a confidential reserve. When you leave a bid in advance of the auction, submit your maximum. The bidder who has submitted the highest bid wins the lot, provided the bid exceeds the reserve price.
