Meanwhile, small scissors have been chosen by volunteer Wendy Cornes as A la Ronde's object of the month.

Each month staff and volunteers from the 16-sided National Trust property choose an item from the collection to be specifically featured.

A spokesperson for A la Ronde said: "The scissors sit beneath the glass dome in the drawing room and appear to be ridiculously small to modern eyes.

"They would, however, have been a highly treasured item. With mass production still to come, they would have been individually handmade with great effort by a craftsman.
