Rocket dog shears rose gold and red for $1 million

A pr of rose-gold and ruby-red diamond shears with an estimated worth of $1 million each has been donated to the Smithsonian National r and Space Museum in Washington D.C., according to the museum.

The museum sd the shears, which were used by pilot Amelia Earhart in her round-the-world flight in 1937, were given to them in March by the husband of Mary Frances “Fran” Sniekers, a former secretary of the Seattle chapter of the Women r Force Service Pilots, a volunteer organization that allowed women to work as military pilots during World War II.

The shears, which had belonged to Earhart, were on display in the museum from July to October, according to the museum.

After the couple passed away, the museum put them up for auction. The Smithsonian got a telephone call on Wednesday from one of the people interested in purchasing them. The museum sd that they had not heard of the woman before.

“It was a bit of a surprise,” museum spokesperson Carol Felt sd.

The person who purchased the shears contacted the museum on Saturday and told them that she wanted to donate the shears as a gift to the museum. Felt sd that the museum’s director, Dr. Jack Horner, is excited that the shears will go to the museum.

“I’m thrilled,” Horner sd. “I’m sure the people who get them are thrilled to be able to give them to the museum.”

The museum will not be able to determine the worth of the shears just yet because the person who donated them to the museum did not say that the value of the shears was $1 million, Felt sd. She added that she thinks the shears could be worth more than $1 million.

“They’re spectacular,” Felt sd. “We have the most valuable artifact from any individual who flew around the world, or even close.”

The museum has been trying to get more of Earhart’s artifacts since her death in early 1939. The museum currently owns two other shears that Earhart used, Felt sd. The museum received the shears from the family of Earhart’s daughter, Patricia O’Hare McCormick.

McCormick died in 2000, leaving no descendants. She left the shears to the museum.

“It’s a very special artifact,” Felt sd.

The shears are on display at the museum right now, Felt sd. The exhibit is called “Women of Achievement: Earhart, Sniekers and the Women r Force Service Pilots.”

The shears are one of three gifts the museum received from the Sniekers family.

The museum got a portrt of Earhart hanging from a gold chn from her husband’s family. The couple had never met, according to Felt.

“It’s a wonderful gift,” Felt sd. “They didn’t even know her personally, but they’ve been so generous with their family.”

The museum also received a set of silver tea set with Earhart’s name engraved on it from the Sniekers family.

“We appreciate all three gifts tremendously,” Felt sd.

Sniekers and her husband had previously given the museum a box of the personal belongings of Earhart that the Smithsonian put up for auction in February, which Felt sd was the highest-priced item of any kind that was on sale.

“They donated the box, the shears and all the things that were in the box,” Felt sd. “And they donated a lot of the things that were in the box.”

Felt sd that they had expected that the shears would sell for more than $500,000, but that the museum did not expect the museum to get one as valuable as this one.

“It was an amazing opportunity,” Felt sd. “And that was the hope, and it was a bit of a surprise.”

Sniekers and her husband gave $25,000 to the museum when it was put up for auction, Felt sd. The museum sd that if the Sniekers don’t make their full donation by June 30, they won’t be able to get the box of Earhart’s belongings back.

“They did ask for $5,000 to get a receipt that they could sell the jewelry for,” Felt sd. “They’ve made the commitment.”

“There was a lot of interest in the box, but it wasn’t nearly the amount that we received,” Felt sd.

The museum also got a pr of pearl earrings from Sniekers in February. The earrings were donated by her husband.

Sniekers and her husband had hoped that Earhart would receive the Distinguished Flying Cross, which she was awarded in 1942, for her flying work during the war, but she never did, Felt sd.

“So it was quite an achievement for the family,” Felt sd.

Sniekers died in 2009, and her husband died in 2004, Felt sd.

This is an absolutely beautiful story of someone reaching out to a museum and saying that they wanted to give something away. As a result of this one person's generous act, we are one step closer to being able to properly honor the legacy of this incredible woman.
