SMALL FOLDING PAIR OF SCISSORS WITH A BUTTON HOOK WITH PATENT DATE OF 1914 Stamped "Hesjah" with a patent date of April 14, 1914. When closed it measures about 1 3/4" in diameter. The scissors are 1 3/4" long and the blades are about 3/4" long from the pivot point. The button hook is about 1 3/4" long. The scissors and button hook are tightly attached to tiny knobs until used. Would have been excellent for a sewing kit or a ladies' chatelaine as it's very compact. In fine condition with no tarnish and no wear. (see all 7 pictures)
