These rare scissors were made by R. Heinisch. Heinisch produced his patented steel blades\/iron scissors in Newark, New Jersey during the years 1835-1914. His scissors and shears acquired a high reputation in the markets of the world.

In 1877, his sons joined him in his business and the engraved trademarks became, R. Heinisch & Sons. Prior to this time, the engraved trademark read, "R. Heinisch, Newark, New Jersey U.S.A.", like the tradmark on these scissors.

In 1914, the company was purchased by J. Wiss & Sons Co.

My scissors measure 12 inches in length and are engraved with the number 4 as shown in the photos. They are in very good condition, are sharp and cut quite well.

These scissors seem to be rare and quite unique. These would make a great addition to any collection.

The items shown in the first photo with the scissors are not included in this sale.
