(19th Jan 2002) Edwardian marked GLOVE hook
A fine example of an Edwardian Gentleman's & Ladies Glove hook. Used to
button up fashionable kid gloves which were often made with several small
buttons at the wrist.
Fastening of such gloves was difficult in the extreme and the use of a small
glove hook to pass through the 'eye' or button hole to secure the button and
then pull through and fasten was an essential accoutrement for the well
dressed man or woman.
Our small ( 3.5 inches) hook bears the manufacturers/retailers name on one
side - "W HODGKINSON LTD, WARRINGTON" and onthe reverse the words "HOSIERS & GLOVERS"
