These shears (or scissors) along with about 6 other pairs were in an old woodworkers chest I received when my father-in-law passed away. I know they came from his wife's grandfather and he did high level inlay work, piano repairs, and very intricate woodworking. I have looked high and low on the internet to no avail. They have the Crown logo on one side and the words "Crown Cutlery Co., Prussia on the other. Some have different spring configurations but all have straight blades. My first impression is that they are for cutting veneer but I can't find anything to support that other than they were with some inlay work. Anyone familar with these or know where I might get more information? Thanks!
