A beautiful and perfectly charming antique sterling silver button hook in miniature form.
Worn by Victorian ladies on their chatelaine chains these handy hooks were originally used to fasten the tiny buttons on gloves. These days they make for a unique necklace pendant.
The hook is beautifully embossed in a very decorative Art Nouveau pattern and it is fully hallmarked for Ade & Lufkin Ltd. Birmingham. We have added a new 18" (46cm) sterling silver trace chain for immediate wear. Our chains are manufactured in Italy, they are top quality and fully hallmarked. With elegant even sized oval links the chains are antiqued (oxidised) to impart an aged patina which matches our antique pendants perfectly.
Wonderful for layering and wearing alone as a quirky signature piece, a unique gift for the lover of antique jewellery!
