these vintage black italian sewing scissors and box of serpent brand steel packing needles with curved points have been ageing in a shed since the 1940s...the packing needles used to be used to sew up canvas packages, or can be used for upholstery or leather stitching etc.

the scissors still work fine (only tested with paper) but are a bit wonky, and were made in italy. the packing needles are a bit rusty, but their little box has great character. serpent brand, made by john james and sons, redditch in england.

scissors measure approximately 21 cm long x 6.5 cm at widest point
