266741 Bill Ghio 2018‑10‑11 Can't resist old scissors
Drives my wife nits because we have scissors all over the house. All users, I
just stick them in various drawers. It is just that when i see a good pair of
vintage scissors for a buck or two I can’t leave them laying there. This wee i
found a small pair of Osborne scissors. Didn’t even know they made scissors. The
catalogs I found on-line suggest they are Bent Trimmers for the upholstery
trade. But, the ones in the vintage catalogs are not this small. These are a tad
under 7 inches and the catalogs show 8 inches and up. Logo and handle design are
also different. I figure the logo should be a clue to dating them. Any ideas?
