Item details

Vintage WISS Inlaid Scissors No. 30 10" SHEARS-STRAIGHT TRIMMERS (also known as Household Shears)

These older scissors are still first rate cutters. They open and close smoothly and cut through paper and cloth easily.

I found them them listed in on page 14 of the 1950 WISS catalog. They are listed as Model 30, which means they are 10" shears with a 5" cut and black japanned handles.

They are fairly hefty, weighing in at 10.5 ounces on my postage scales.

As shown in the photos the condition is good. The metal has age darkened and some of the black paint has chipped off. But as noted above they cut very nicely.

I gladly accept PayPal or major credit cards through etsy direct checkout. I sure don't want to come across as unfriendly but I assume when someone places an order they mean it. Therefore IF YOU MUST cancel please NOTIFY ME WITHIN 24 HOURS or you risk my having mailed it already.
