Scissors

1900? Scissors with one serrated edge showing foxes straining upward for grapes on each handle.  5" long and 2" wide.  $15.50 from Richard Smith, Jr., Oak Ridge, NJ, through Ebay, Sept., '00.

Am I correct in presuming that this is a grape scissors for cutting bunches of grapes from the larger bunch or vine?  Is that silver plating that is tarnished?  Click on the image to see it enlarged.
