This beautiful set combines the popular Eiffel Tower scissors with the traditional tassel and charm with the prized silver thimble - both treasures any stitcher would covet. This silver thimble is a veritable jewel! It is made using the lost-wax technique (also known by the French name "cire perdue"). A mold is made after the development of a prototype. The silver is poured into the mold and once set, each thimble is reworked by hand, refining the slightest detail. This thimble weighs 9 grammes of 935 °/oo silver. It has two hallmarks - one for the silver and one for the silversmith that made it. It has a slightly splayed form, measuring 1.7cm at the base and 1cm at the top.
