      Barber's manual hair clipper. Electric models appeared in the 1950's. Still in use in many parts of the world.

      Agree 100% w.Congcu. The stamped name/etc on the inside (or any other stampings/etc anywhere) will be where you'll need to start searching for more exact detail of who/where made it and when. Good luck! :-)

      My father learned to be a barber during the Depression to augment his income. I have his barber set with two hand clippers. One is a Ros Keen from Germany. The other is a Flyer made in USA. There were many other makers both here and in Germany. Since the two counter-posed blades were perfectly flat, they could be sharpened on a flat abrasive lapping plate. I learned how to do so myself.

      Thank you so much for the information ???? Congsu and AnythingObscure.
      There is a stamp which looks like Tranafa or possibly Franafa.
