Surely whoever made that could have found better screws?

Not if they were silver, but certainly ordinary id they were steel (could be stainless steel too). Difficult to tell from the pic. I have seen brass saw screws advertised on Ebay and for all the world look as if they are steel. I also think that the back and screws should be made from matching material. Whilst the carving is "interesting" and technically accomplished, it does not look as though it would be comfortable to hold.

Stop being a show off in class,
釘elieve it or not, this saw was made for a special young lady, Princess Victoria. According to the description, it is "... an Exhibition Saw made by Taylor Brothers, Saw Manufacturers, Adelaide Works, Sheffield, as a wedding present for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, Princess Victoria Adelaide Mary Louisa on the occasion of her marriage to Friedrich Willhelm, Crown Prince of Prussia."
This I pinched from my Facebook site
