Description from Objects of Use
Established in 1730, Burgon & Ball moved into its current home, La Plata Works, in 1873, famed originally for its sheep shears, of which it is the countrys sole surviving manufacturer, by 1920 sales of its garden and topiary shears had already overtaken these. Gradually the company diversified into an ever growing range of garden equipment, whilst remaining true to its agricultural heritage and commitment to quality. This is a mini shear ideal for detailed work, light pruning, bonsai, or harvesting herbs. Approximately 160mm in length.
