This is a Victorian era, advertizing display case for scissors and shears. As you can see from the stencil-painted lettering, this one was made by the Cattaraugus Cutlery Company, so named in 1886 in Little Valley, New York. Admiral Byrd bought their knives for his South Pole Expedition. In 1905, the Case family separated, beginning their equally famous knife company. The Cattaraugus Company closed its doors in 1963.
This case is just the way you want it to be, having as found condition, no repairs, and aged paint. It is a great display case for your collections to keep them dust free.
