This exceptional pair of antique Victorian sterling silver wick trimmers/snuffer has a hinged scissor action.

The anterior surface of these impressive candle wick trimmer scissors are embellished with cast and applied scrolling leaf ornamentation, accented with a floral rosette to the pivoting hinge.

The domed portion of the silver wick trimmer is further ornamented with gadroon style ornamentation and the plateaued side bears the contemporary bright cut engraved coat of arms* depicting an escutcheon of two bendlets, surmounted with a helm and crest of a dove, all above the motto 'Kynd Kynn Knawne Keepe' - Kind Friends Know and Keep.

The two fingerpieces are ornamented with reed decoration accented with scrolling motifs to the upper and lower portions.

The posterior surface is plain and unembellished, supported by three elongated rounded feet.

These exceptional trimmers are accompanied by the original sterling silver snuffer tray; this tray has a rectangular, rounded shaped form.

The surface of the tray is embellished with flat chased floral and scrolling leaf decoration, incorporating the aforementioned crest to the centre.

The raised rounded sides of the tray are encompassed with a paralleling applied scrolling leaf decorated border to the shaped rim.

Antique wick trimmers with matching trays are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.

* This heraldry pertains to the family Kay
