    Farm Fresh from our own farm -- with lots of Patina on them. These have been passed down and I am assuming they are Sterling Silver due to the Black. See no marks, but will look again. I am assuming they are Victorian? No sure -- as just found them in some stuff I was just going through here.

    Any info appreciated ...... Thanks

      The Griffon Cutlery Works was founded in 1888 by Albert L. Silberstein (1866-?). They manufactured razors, nail files and a great many types of scissors, including (as the signs say) pinking shears, nippers and manicure sets, as well as "Ladies' Button Hole" scissors. Their trademark registration also mentions embroidery scissors, poultry shears, barber shears, tweezers, pushers, blackhead removers and nose scissors. They were located on Broadway in NYC (until around 1915), then they moved to West 19th Street in 1920 and remained there until 1968. They also had a factory and branch outlet in Solingen, Germany.
