The collectible yellow and silver Wallace flower-garden clippers are in very good condition. While these clippers could be sharpened and made ready for cutting, they are being offered in this listing as a decorative collectible. According to references, these clippers/shears were made sometime in the 1960's to 1970's by the Wallace Manufacturing Company of Connecticut. Also, the longer blade reveals that they were produced with forged steel blades and made in the USA. While there is supposedly additional information on the inside of the handles, the yellow rubber handle covers cannot be safely removed to see it. However, the fact that they are still in very good working condition is a testimony to the high-quality craftsmanship that went into producing these forged steel Wallace garden clippers nearly half of a century ago. Even more, it is that same high-quality craftsmanship that makes American made tools from the twentieth-century so much more desirable and collectible. On top of their collectible nature, the vibrant yellow rubber handle covers along with their aged and distressed appearance give them a wonderful farm and garden charm. The vibrant yellow handles and chrome upper section of these farm and garden clippers bring back memories of days gone by when grandma would tell two feisty little boys to sit on the steps while she weeded her flower garden and small tomato patch next to the carport. Truly, those were the good ole days.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual.

While the rubber slip-on handle cover on the bottom has some slight wear near the butt, the top rubber handle cover has a little more distress at the end along with a small slice-like line near the front. Other than this, there are no breaks, cracks, chips, bent areas, or repair places on these collectible yellow and silver Wallace flower-garden clippers. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the clippers - mainly in the form of an aged and worn appearance. As can be seen in the photos, there is a slight bit of rustic patina near the center of the clippers. Also, the chrome section shows some age on its surface in the form of pitting. The clippers have been cleaned with soap and water to make sure they can be handled and that they are clean to the touch. In addition, the blade lock is fully intact and in great working condition.

The decorative possibilities for these gorgeous late mid-century style Wallace garden clippers are many. The display case or or open collectibles shelf would be enhanced by the addition of these collectible flower-garden clippers. Also, the man-cave, den, or lodge would welcome these gorgeous Wallace clippers for their aged and distressed appearance along with their farm and garden charm. In addition, the growing tool collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of these vibrant Wallace Manufacturing flower-garden clippers .

The collector will appreciate these Wallace garden clippers for their very good condition, aged and distressed look, vibrant yellow handles, farm and garden charm, and gorgeous overall appearance.

The collectible Wallace flower-garden clippers weigh approximately 11 oz.

The gorgeous yellow and silver Wallace garden clippers measure approximately 12.5" in length from the back of the handle to the tip of the blades x 2.75" wide across the front of the open blades x 3.25" tall at the back of the handles.

The stationary blade measures approximately 7 5/8" in length while the spring-loaded blade measures approximately 7 1/8" in length.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
