Have Antique Repair Questions? Ask an Antique Appraiser
I have a set of Brown & Sharpe Bressant and Taperng Hair clippers, with instructions and repair tag included. The were my late husband's grandfather's that he used himself at home. They are not in the original box but I believe it's a complete set (with individual tapering shields). I am not looking to sell them, but would like to have a general appraisal of potential value, to determine if I need to keep storing them in my safe deposit box. Any assistance would be appreciated.
The stamped date on the clipper handle "appears" to be Dec, 07, 1925. I also have what looks to be UNUSED set of replacement blades for this clipper.In closer inspection on other items in same box, I believe I have a separate maker (German) on a smaller pair of clippers in the mix. I would need more assistance in confirming other parts of the Brook & Sharpe items.
It is very good to know. I will be looking for information on the other items in the box, but I do appreciate knowing more about them. I am a history fan, so these will remain where they are, regardless of monetary value. I appreciate your quick response.
thank you again --- now I just have to see if I can get my eyes to clearly read the information inscribed on the other items..Would the keen edge shear also be a Brown & Sharpe Product? it has a number 470 on it, but I cannot read anymore...
