Item details

This listing is for a gorgeous heavy pair of Tailor's Scissors/Upholstery Scissors, which are still in good working order despite their age. They do show signs of wear and tear from their preloved life but for me this only adds to their charm. I love them!

They have a worn makers name which I have been unable to decipher, other than the word Liverpool, so I am assuming they are English and were made circa 1940.

They are wonderfully tactile and make a lovely decorative piece or the perfect gift for a sewing enthusiast/upholsterer.

They measure 26 cm x 8.5 cm at the widest part and weigh nearly 400 gm

I mainly ship within the UK but if you would like a quote for shipping abroad and your country is not listed then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you for looking and happy shopping!

I pack and ship orders Monday to Friday and most are sent out within 1-3 working days; except items sent by courier which may take slightly longer depending on the day they are ordered. All orders ship from Reigate and will be sent to the shipping address on your Etsy account. You will receive an automated confirmation email from Etsy when you place your order and I will keep you informed with exact shipping details along the way. I always use a Signed For service.

Items shipped abroad are also sent using a trackable service and the buyer is responsible for any import /customs duties that may be payable.

While all orders are completed as quickly as possible, should you need something by a specific date, just let me know and I will endeavour to get your package to you as quickly as I can. I will happily gift wrap items too so again just ask.

The majority of my items are vintage and as such bear the marks and scars of their preloved life! I do my best to photograph and describe them as honestly and accurately as possible. However, if you have any questions before you order do please message me.

All my items are carefully wrapped however I do recycle packaging where I can too in an effort to minimise waste and protect the environment.


I accept payment via Credit Card, Paypal and Etsy Gift Cards.
