Antique & Vintage Sewing Accessories
Antique Scissors

The wide assortment of scissors you will find on this page originated from collections assembled in California, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan, and were part several large and diverse antique sewing collections we are handling on consignment.  This is the first time most of these pieces have been out on the market in many years.





Ivory 
	Handled Antique Folding ScissorsIvory Handled Antique Folding Scissors  These antique scissors have folding ivory handles so they can easily be tucked away into a pocket or purse.  They are marked "Patent", and the beveled edge of the blades are actually files so they double in purpose.  Be sure to look at all the pictures to see them folded up.

Antique Figural Handle "Lady Legs" ScissorsAntique Figural Handle "Lady Legs" Scissors  This pair of early scissors is unmarked as far as I can see, but really well-made.  It is unusual to find a pair of scissors having the shank in the form of a shapely pair of legs.  This form is much more frequently found as a corkscrew handle.  Guaranteed original---Different and nice!  Highly recommend!

Combination Scissors and Cigar Cutter with AdvertisingCombination Scissors and Cigar Cutter with Advertising  This multi-tool has advertising for Broadhead Mills, an early textile mill that was located in Jamestown, NY in the late 1800's.  Unfortunately the advertising wasn't enough to keep the place going as it closed down when the area was hit by the Depression in the 1930's.

Antique Scissors4 Unusual Pairs of Antique Scissors  These four pairs of scissors will make a great start or added addition to an antique scissor or sewing tool collection.  The large pair on the left is patented and I imagine the patent applies to the screw mechanism that allows them to be taken apart and also lets you adjust the tension between the cutting blades.  It's a great idea as I have had a lot of scissors that could have used this feature---and have you ever tried sharpening a pair when they are together?  But we don't have to worry about that anymore---nowadays we just throw them out and buy a new pair.  The ornate brass pair has a decorative sheathe to cover the blades.  The next pair are a fairly simple pair of buttonhole cutting scissors.  The last pair are delicate tiny steel scissors.

Vintage Stork Scissors5 Pairs of Vintage "Stork" Scissors  These stork shaped scissors are each a little different.  It was a popular design that worked well for needlework tasks.  The two brass plated ones on the left are marked "Italy".  The little one must have been for a charm bracelet or necklace, and it is actually operable.  The fourth one is unmarked but appears to have good age to it and is in original nickel plate finish.  The last one is marked "Berkshire Cutlery Works Germany", which would make it pre-date WWII, and looks to have originally been brass plated as well though much of the finish has worn off.
