Once worn on a chatelaine or long-guard chain this beautiful little Victorian button hook is now a charming antique pendant that you can wear daily and adore!
Crafted in gleaming sterling silver the handle is beautifully embossed in a gorgeous Baroque pattern with heart motifs and both the hook part and handle are sterling silver. This hook remains in beautiful antique condition and is stamped with full British hallmarks for the year 1899.
Used by Victorian and Edwardian ladies to fasten the tiny buttons on their gloves this delightful silver miniature hook suspends from a sterling silver Prince of Wales fine link chain so it is ready to wear right out of the box.
