    These are either unmarked or the original markings wore off, but these scissors appear to be early 20th Century (circa pre-1930) I.P. Hyde XX-12 brass-handled shears. While the handle was originally painted black, I think it looks pretty good in its original brass. The blades have been cleaned and polished to be near-mirror smooth, and they still cut "like butta."

    Full Length: 12-1/2”
    Blade Cutting Length: 7-1/2”
    Blade Width: 1”
    Weight: 10.4 oz
