#43: German Cruciform Scissors

Maker: BETZ Co
Model: --
Materials: Metal, probably steel because they show rust.
Year: Antique? People date the around 1900, but I am not sure.
Length: 9.5" long

Description: As shown. Cross-design on handles. This pair is in poor condition.  Good to mint examples would have a higher value. These scissors are fairly common and easy to find. I think they also come in a smaller size that is about 6" long.

The design is often described in terms such as Gothic and Art Nouveau.

The scissors seem not uncommon especially for their age.

Value: $1, up to $20 for mint.
