Item details

A pair of vintage pinking shears from company "Philmerco". These are designed to cut light weight materials only.

Model number 408 B

Size (total length) 7 1/4 inches (18.5 cm)

These shears have a note inside the lid stating that they are made from "...specially hardened steel blades..."

Condition notes: The box is worn and a bit tatty (please refer to photographs showing inside and out of box). I have tested the scissors on a piece of cotton fabric (photo 9), and they managed a clean cut, so would probably be suitable for use, as well as being a collectable item.


Any questions? Please feel free to ask.

Please note that reflections are visible in the photographs.
