These 800 silver grape shears are oh-so Downton Abbey!  They are beautifully crafted on both the front and back decorated with grapes, vines and leaves.  Grape shears were used to pull off bite-sized grape bundles from a larger bunch so they are not sharp, but rather more like pinchers.  Hallmarks seem to indicate an English manufacture.
