Старинные ножницы и очень красивые швейные несессеры.






Moroni, Giovanni Battista

Самые первые ножницы были придуманы три с половиной тысячи лет назад. При раскопках в Греции археологи обнаружили это древнейшее приспособление, представлявшее собой два лезвия, соединённых наподобие пинцета.

Изобретение это, хоть и функционировало, не было особо удачным. Лезвия «овечьих» ножниц приходилось сжимать руками, наподобие огром­ных щипцов для раздачи торта, а потом ещё и разжимать. Такими ножницы долго бы и оставались, если бы не величайшее открытие математика и меха­ника Древней Греции Архимеда. Он сформули­ровал принцип рычага, заявив: «Дайте мне точ­ку опоры, и я переверну мир». Именно этим принципом в VIII веке воспользовался некий ближневосточный ремесленник, соединив лез­вия не в виде пинцета, а с помощью гвоздика, загнув ручки кольцами.

Scissors - These are very similar to old hand forged scissors with big hand holes for leverage. Blades are very sharp to cut a large variety of materials including leather.

Постепенно ножницы приобрета­ли специальности. Одни предназначались для лекарей, вторые - для парикмахеров, третьи - для скорняков. Были и такие, что становились предметами роскоши - из золота и серебра.
Ближневосточной культуре мы обязаны со­временной изящной формой маникюрных ножниц. Один ювелир получил титул первого мудреца за то, что сумел придумать ножницы такого размера, что они идеально подходили к ноготкам любимой жены шаха. Французы стали использовать ножницы в кулинарии для разделывания рождественских гусей и прочей до­машней птицы. Немцы создали гигантские стальные ножницы для резки металла при авариях на дорогах. Этим приспособлением можно прорезать заклинившую дверь, вскрывать кор­пус машины. А англичане изобрели ножницы для стрижки газонов.
На смену стальным ножницам сегодня при­шли лазерные. Они не только разрезают ткань по заданной программой выкройке, но и оплав­ляют края, чтобы те не обсыпались. Скорость раскроя - почти метр в секунду.

Palais Royal Necessaire - In the early part of the 19th century, the finest needlework sets were being made in Paris. When Louis Phillipe inherited the royal palace he turned one wing of the palace into a shopping arcade which was known as the Palais Royal.
---------

Boulle Sewing Box - This exquisite sewing box is made with an elaborate pattern of brass inlaid over shell. This type of work is named after Andre Charles Boulle, who was the favored furniture maker for Louis XIV. Usually, Boulle work is done over tortoise shell, but in this case it is worked over what appears to be mother of pearl or perhaps something very similar to mother of pearl.

Miniature Tortoise Etui - This delicate little etui measures just 3 1/2" x 2 1/4" x 2"high. The case is made of tortoise shell and gilded brass.

Gilt Etui

Gilt Etui - The wood grain in this lovely oval case is constructed in a beautiful diamond shape. And the grain of the wood on the bottom of the case is even prettier than the grain on the top. In the center of the diamond shape is an unengraved brass medallion. The tools inside of the etui include: gilt stiletto, bodkin, scissors and needlecase as well as a gold thimble.


Tula Work Etui - Tula work is a form of gilded decoration on steel, originating in Russia. By clicking on the enlargement for the third picture, you can see how truly beautiful this technique is on sewing tools.

Palais Royal Workbox -$3450.00

Palais Royal Workbox - This beautiful workbox was undoubtedly made in the Palais Royal district of Paris. In the late 18th, early 19th century a man named Louie Philippe, the Duke of Orleans inherited the palace in Paris. He turned one wing of the palace into a shoping arcade called the "Palais Royal". Only the finest artisans in France were allowed to set up shop there and, of course, they catered to the wealthy aristocracy. They made exquisite pieces using fragile mother of pearl. One of the signatures of the Palais Royal is the little blue enamel pansy that you see on the needlecase in this box.

Palais Royal Piano Workbox - Exceptionally rare, this stunning figural workbox is made in the shape of a piano. The top of the piano has inlaid ivory "keys" and a beautiful grain in the wood. The side of the piano has a lovely piece of gilt trim in the shape of two cornucopias filled with fruits and flowers. The piano measures 11 1/2" long by 7 3/4" wide by 6 1/2" high.

Palais Royal Piano Workbox - Describing a phenominal piece like this is almost futile. It is an exceptionally rare and truly special workbox. Everything about it is spectacular. The box itself is obviously figural in the shape of a piano with keys inlaid in the wood on the top of the box. The grain of the wood is stunning and great effort has been taken to match the grains on all sides of the piano. It is circa 1820.
