Cool Vintage Piece of the Day

One of the things people love about our shop is our unique inventory of vintage finds. This is one of the most unique pieces we have in the studio right now.
Vintage Candle Snuffer Scissors
It seems that brass is more common, but this is a wonderful pair in silverplate. They were (or still are) used both to extinquish the flame and to trim the wick of a candle prior to lighting.
When they sit flat, the scissors rest on the short posts off the table. I'm sure so that the soot doesn't dirty the surface. There is a mark on this pair, making it even a little more rare. We'll be listing these on our Etsy site VintageScout soon, so be sure to check there for more information.
