Embossed, Silver Handled Glove Hook

Embossed, Silver Handled Glove Hook

SKU: RJ00023
£40.00Price

In the 18th and 19th century fastenings on undergarments and boots would always have been buttoned. The buttons on shoes and boots at this time were dome-shaped and a hook would be needed in order to thread the button through the hole with ease. Undergarments usually had small mother of pearl buttons; a button hook would make it easier to thread through the hole.

Silver-handled button hook used for fastening buttons on ladies gloves, shoes, and boots. This is a fine example of a buttonhook, which would have typically been owned by someone of means.

The hook is made from steel. The silver handle is adorned a partridge and a green man amongst an ornate design. It is fully hallmarked for Birmingham 1906 and bears maker's mark, WJM & Co.

Measures 20.5 cm in length.
