Find out a little more about the vintage items I am curating in my Etsy Store -


The J. Wiss Co.

J. Wiss & Sons Company was founded in 1848 by Jacob Wiss, a thirty-one-year-old immigrant from Switzerland who was an experienced cutler and gunsmith. The company, headed by Wiss and his descendants in Newark, N.J., emphasized high quality in its products which became known world-wide and sold to the U.S. Government in the Civil War and the two World Wars.
In 1914, Wiss acquired the manufacturing facilities of a competitor and became the largest producer of fine scissors and shears in the world. Following World War I, Wiss weathered a severe depression in the scissor market. The Wiss company is still around today as a subsidiary of Cooper Industries.

I am curating 2 beautiful pair of Wiss Pinking Shears.
