Item details

Vintage industrial long blade scissors or bent handle trimmers made by Wiss, which has been in business in the USA since 1848. Shears this large were made for the industrial market. They likely would have been used by a tailor or upholsterer as the offset handle allows the blades to lie flat on the work surface. This pair shows lots of use and wear and that's part of the draw for me in collecting scissors--you can feel the hand of the craftsperson who used them.

Marked "WISS-INLAID", "WISS Newark N.J. U.S.A.", "STEELFORGED No 22", and stamped "32" on each blade

Dimensions: 12 1/4" long x 3 3/4" wide; blade is 8" long

Condition: rust and wear from use, but still cut nicely
