A small antique buttonhook with English silver handle, being hallmarked, we believe, for Birmingham 1906. In modern times, the buttonhook could make a useful Engagement, pre-Wedding or Wedding present to assist in fastening those fiddly little buttons on Wedding Dresses or gloves.
We believe that this little buttonhook was probably used to fasten the buttons on gloves. Unfortunately we have been unable to read the lead character of the impressed makers initials and we have therefore been unable to identify the Silversmith (?VP and Co).
The shaft is probably steel (we could find no mark on that) and subject to some oxidisation which we have tried, with limited success, to show in the photographs. However, the buttonhook appears to be otherwise structurally sound.
The buttonhook measures just over 4in in length and given its size, is a remarkable survivor! Weighs just over 9g.
