Item details

Stork scissors were used for fine embroidering and other delicate needlework but are believed to have begun as birthing scissors used by 19th-century midwives to clamp and sever the umbilical cord. By the late 1800‘s, the novel stork design had been adapted as a popular sewing tool that is still reproduced.

August and Emil Krusius started buisiness 1886 in Solingen Germany. The KB Extra trademark was registered in 1901 and the company was in business until 1983. They produced cutlery, straight blade razors and scissors. Most of these beautiful decorative scissors where produced in the early 1900‘s.

It was popular among needle pointers to wear these on long chains around their neck for ease of use while working. This pair are in wonderful condition, still thread sharp with little sign of wear. They have small areas of patina and some bass metal showing through but still lots of shine. Please see all photos for further details.

They measure3.75“ long by 1.5“ wide across the handles.
