10 Scissors Clipart Graphics
Today we have a wonderful collection of Scissors Clipart Graphics. Don’t you just love ornate Vintage Sewing and Embroidery Scissors? Each of the Antique Sewing Scissors images is beautifully detailed and lusciously illustrated. All of these are black and white clipart drawings. Several of the Scissors Graphics are scanned from an amazing and huge catalog published in the 1850s!! The catalog is loaded with hundreds (possibly thousands as I didn’t actually count them) of fantastic black and white engravings of gorgeous objects!! Everything from the ornate ladies sewing scissors that you see below to furniture, carpets, lamps, urns, statues etc. Good stuff! And more recently I have added some more simple utilitarian options as well. Nice to use for Sewing or Steampunk craft projects!
Children’s Scissors Images
This cute little pair was scanned from a 1910’s catalog. These were called pocket scissors and they cost 37 cents at the time! I think they look a bit like old fashioned children’s scissors. They could be nice to use in back to school projects or crafts.
Ornate Scissors Clipart
Here we have a pair of Vintage Sewing and Embroidery Scissors designed showing the head of a woman with upswept hair just above the blades. Ornate acanthus leaf scrollwork handles add such beautiful detail. I am especially drawn to the vine and leaves that wrap the finger holes without quite touching the shank. Lovely!
Above you see a stunning pair of antique scissors with images of a Stag or Deer with Antlers. The Vintage Sewing and Embroidery Scissors look as if they belong to either a royal or at least someone fairly important. There is a shield with coat of arms topped by a crown. The handles have ornate scrollwork topped with a fleur de lis crown at the top of each finger hole. These are magnificent!
This is a very unique pair of Antique Sewing and Embroidery Scissors. There is a fleur de lis design on the mid shank section. Above this are the half round finger holes that form a perfect circle when closed. Breathtaking!I would call these Victorian Floral Embroidery Scissors opulent! Beautiful tulips are designed into the shank of the scissors and appear to be intertwined with elegant ribbons. The finger holes have leaf shapes and meet with a darling tiny floral design.
This is another wonderful image of ornate sewing scissors from an antique 1850’s catalog! I love the Victorian embroidery scissors clipart with lots of pretty scrolls.
Above is a fantastic Vintage Scissors Clip Art Image! This is a beautiful pair of Sewing Scissors with very ornate handles! An Antique Silverware Catalog is the source of these beauties! The catalog is not dated, but my best guess would be that it dates to the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. These fancy Scissors were made in Silverplate and the original cost was $4.50.
Household Scissors Clipart
I love the ornate scissors, but here I offer some more traditional and utilitarian scissors pictures free for you. This one shown above is for those who like to sew! The antique sewing scissors picture is from an 1889 ladies fashion magazine. They are some nice sturdy looking sewing scissors or shears aren’t they?
Aren’t these fun?!! This is a Scissor ad from an early 1900’s Ladies Magazine! They have a large oval area that is perfect for a personal message. I’ve removed the advertising so that you can use the Photoshop scissors as a frame, label, scrapbooking element or whatever you like. This would be a cute way to label your sewing or crafting supplies!
Here is the latest addition to this collection. This is a pair of small cuticle scissors. They pretty much look the same as they do today. This one was scanned from a 1917 Fashion Catalog.
I hope you enjoyed this curated collection of Scissors Clipart Graphics – Free!! You might also like our Best Vintage Steampunk Images HERE or our Antique Sewing Machine Pictures HERE!

I really want these scissors. Ever see any real ones like this? But thank you for the picture- I will sigh over it, and maybe use it for a pretty handmade label.
