|Description: A pair of forged steel sheep wool shears made out of one piece. Blades are triangular and measure 14.5 cm long and 4.3 cm wide at the base. Marked on the upper surface of the proper right blade near the bases is the following: 'Shears J W C'. |
Items belonged to Fred Nogas which he collected over the past 50 years. Fred was originally from the Niagara region and some of these tools belonged to his grandfather who had a farm in the area. Others were bought in Mississauga and various places in southern Ontario. Fred has lived in Clarkson since 1960 where he kept this collection of tools.
Sheep shears are used to trim the fleece from sheep.
