I put a Scissor Case on my to make list when I became a scissor snob. I wouldn’t be able to afford to replace my ‘good’ scissors if I lost them, and I can imagine it was much the same in previous eras.
These examples are all between 1870 and 1885, there is even one in Simplicity 8532 Sewing accessory pattern. The wall-mounted pattern appears in dozens of sources, perhaps it was popular for those who were immobile.
I may actually make the 1870 for my fabric scissors I bought in 1975.
