These scissors are unique in that they were produced, I assume for the Jamestown Exposition 1607 to 1907.
They are made of a quite heavy metal, but I don't know if they are steel.
They are marked Clauss, Fremont, which I guess is the maker.
On one side of the scissors there is a tomb embossed on the wide part of the scissors, and, on the other side, a scene of Captain John smith and Pocahontas.
That side has the date and Exposition mark as well.
Historical pair of scissors.
Condition: Some wear on the metal due to age. The scissors are a bit wobbly on the screw, but cut beautifully.
Size: 6 1/2 inches by 1 7/8 inches.
