This is a vintage pair of cordless electric scissors in their original box. The model is called the Minicut 140. The box sates that these were meant for cutting fabric and are worked by the operator gently pressing the orange button on the top. However, please note, this item is not currently operational. It requires two AA batteries (not included) but when tested it did not work, although it may be repairable by an expert. Despite this, it remains a quirky and unusual vintage crafting gadget, especially as it retains its original packaging.
It measures approximately 14cm in length and 2.5cm in width. It fits comfortably into the palm of the hand for one-handed operation.
The exact age of this item is unknown, but it's from approximately the late 1960s or early 1970s. It is in excellent overall cosmetic condition for its age, with only a few signs of age present. The outer box is also in good condition.
