    I bought this item at an estate auction a few weeks ago. I don't have any idea what it was used for but it cost me $4.00 so I could not resist.
    I believe they were a kitchen utensil or possibly a seamstress tool because of the ornate design on the handles.
    They measure 7" tall.
    They have 3 pairs of curved jaws and the inside edge of each jaw has serrations that run approximately half way out the jaw that would appear to assist in gripping the item to be cut.

    The only identification on them are the numbers "7" which is standing upright followed by the number "6" which is laying sideways.

    If you could please help me identify what they are or were originally used for, I would be very appreciative.

    Thanking you in Advance,
    Mike Klingenberg
