This lovely pair of gold plated scissors is marked on one side with "Germany" and the other side has what looks like a King in a sitting position and under him it says "SMF Solingen". Each handle has what looks like a flower just under the finger holes on both sides. The handles are gold plated and the blades are nickel plated. It comes in an embossed gold plated sheath.
The measurements are 4.75 inches when out of sheath, 5.25 inches when in the sheath.
I would consider these to be in excellent condition. I do not know how much usage they've had in the past because I obtained them at an estate sale. I did see a very small spot of rust on the inside in the area of the screw that connects the blades. (This would be the hidden area). I tested them with a several different types of thread and they made quick smooth cuts.

I gladly combine shipping on multiple items purchased. It is best if possible to contact me first to let me know which items you'll be purchasing so that I can adjust the shipping charges, otherwise at checkout you will be charged the full shipping fee for each item. Should that happen, and if appropriate to do so, I refund a portion of those charges.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING depends on the country. Buyer must contact seller for shipping quote before making purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
