The handle of this fine detailed antique crochet hook is embossed with a strapwork and scallop shell design. It is gilded silver and originally was part of a French sewing ETUI. It is stamped, hallmarked with the French boar's head symbol used for 800/1000 pure silver.
It's in excellent condition with no dents or damage and even the little hook is perfect. It's tiny, about the same as an American steel size 14. It has a faceted steel shank and measures 3 5/8" long. A great edition to your antique sewing collection and would make a unique gift to someone you want to impress.
A plethora of unusual, thought-provoking sewing antiques & a few others that caught my attention...
