Antique Victorian Sterling Silver Banded Agate Button Hook, Red Agate, Glove Hook, Shoe Hook, Birmingham, 1897, War Reenactor, Nice! #b922
Presented today, I have this gorgeous Victorian banded agate button hook!

This beautiful little button hook would have been used by a Victorian lady to button and unbutton all those tiny dress, shoe and glove buttons that were in style during the Victorian era. It features a gorgeous red banded agate handle with luscious bands of reddish orange, caramel and white and a sterling silver hook. The hook has lovely chased designs where it connects to the agate handle, and has a complete set of British hallmarks on one side. It's a rare and exquisite piece, and quite collectible!

The hook measures about 2 1/2 inches long, 5/16 inch wide and weighs 3.2 grams. It has a full set of British hallmarks on the side of the hook which include, a maker's mark of "C&N" for Crisford & Norris Ltd (who manufactured silver during this time period), a lion symbol for sterling silver, a lowercase letter "x" for the year 1897 and a sideways anchor symbol for Birmingham.  

This superb button hook would make a fantastic addition to an antique Victorian collection! It's the perfect piece for lady war reenactors to add to their period clothing collections. It would also make a fine gift for the person who loves sewing or fabric arts. It's a superb antique collectible in marvelous condition!
