Large silver plated button hook, embossed art deco style, 1930s
Silver plate handled button hook in a large size, with an art deco style embossed handle.
Button hooks work by inserting the long hook though the outside edge of the buttonhole and using it to grasp the co-ordinating button underneath and pulling it through. A very simple idea but could be indispensable to those with restricted use of their fingers, whether through arthritis, injuries or other conditions.
The button hook is 24cm/9.5 inches long.
Condition is good with no dings, dents or significant marks to the handle. There isa tiny piece of decorative metal broken off at the join with the steel but this is very minor damage in the context of this lovely item.(see last photo).
Please view the photographs carefully to ensure you are happy with the description and condition before bidding. I am always willing to answer queries and provide more photographs on request.
