Egg Cutter - Topper - Scissors
Not sure what to call this sweet little utensil; Scissors - Topper - Cutter? Unusual blade and spring action. 
No markings other than the French patent-related "Brete .G.D.G." 
Great patina and softness to the silver coating.  Blade is sharp and spring functions as it should.       

Gone to France!

                        2 cups warm water  5 tablespoons oleo (margarine)
                        1 teaspoon salt        2 - 3 tablespoons sugar
                        1 tablespoon yeast   5 - 6 cups flour

Slice oleo and add warm water.  Add salt, sugar, and yeast.  Work in flour and knead.  Butter top and bottom of dough. Cover and let rise 1 hour or until double in size.  Punch down and knead again (if sticky, add flour).  Cut in half and put in 2 greased loaf pans.  Let rise till doubled in size. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes.
