Nicolas Pierre Pelletier (1828-1921) is no doubt an artisan emeritus who is undoubtedly a craftsman doubled by an artist, as Dr Bonnet notes: "With Pelletier, [...] each pair of scissors is an image of life, the steel comes alive as the modeled.
Author of hand-made models from end to end, Nicolas Pierre Pelletier devotes between one and two months of work to the manufacture of a single piece.
Without any notion of drawing, he creates model scissors out of steel fashioned like lace which produce a "true revolution in the art of the chiselling" (A. Petit) at the end of the 19th century.
An exhibition-folder is for the first time dedicated to the Museum of Cutlery Nogent.
