This time, I am asking You about an item. Does anyone out there know exactly what these specialty scissors were made for?
They are signed Hilger & sons, they have a brass rail on one edge that seems to be there to catch some kind of clipping. They are 6” long.
If you’d like a chance to bid on these weird scissors, they will be up at my next live video auction.
WOW! That was fast. I love friend sourcing! I was quickly given an answer to my “what is it” by my friend Kat Barton, a pretty smart gal.
These scissors could be antique candle wick trimmers. Here’s a link to a similar set that Kat sent me.

If you have a “what is it”, you’d like to know more about, send it along to wkolenda@ gmail dot com and maybe I’ll post it here!
Well a Twitter follower has sent me this link, leading me to believe that these could also be “applique scissors” My only question regarding that, is that the modern applique scissor example shown here does not have the rail. But it looks like a match, what do you think? Here’s the link to the applique scissor example.
