These old sheers are super heavy and beautiful. I believe they are carpet sheers from the 1930s and could actually be brought back to life by a skilled sharpener (we still have a sharpeners truck that drives around the neighborhood ringing his bell here in Brooklyn!). Myself, I am drawn to the worn and rusted beauty and think they would make a great decoration in your industrial space. The dark blue painted handles and symmetrical shape are just right. In beautifully rusted vintage condition.
