Collection of Steel Button Hooks

SKU: RJ00015
£60.00Price

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, again a button hook would make it easier to thread through the hole.

These 6 examples are made of steel and are from the end of the Victorian period c1880 - c1900. These examples would have been used in working class households.

Smallest measuring 10cm. Largest measuring 15cm.
