Antique English Sheep Shears-- Burgan & Ball-very old. Burgon and Ball Sheep Shear, dated from 1895. The 294 patent was issued in 1895. This is a Double Bow Sheep Shear for trimming and shearing sheep . This Shear is hand forged, including the two inside rivets. A is a hallmark on both sides, although one is much fainter than the other. The better one, still a little difficult to read, I believe says: "Burgon & Ball" curved over a Royal Crown, and "Patent Number 294" (?) inside a Shield. a "B" on either side of the lower shield, followed by two "B"'s in a Rectangular Box with an "A" underneath, followed by the words "Made in England". This set of shears is quite rusty. Measures approximately 13 3/4 inches long. This is still a functional tool or it would make a great display. This old tool has a great visual appearance to it . - Please ask for photos or more information if you are interested. No refunds/returns . As is. Paypal accepted. Great decorative item. Thank you for looking.
