Antique Banded Agate and Sterling silver ButtonHook, English HallmarksAntique Banded Agate and Sterling silver ButtonHook, English HallmarksAntique Banded Agate and Sterling silver ButtonHook, English Hallmarks

A wonderful early Edwardian era button hook with a handle of polished red banded agate. This small hook, which was more than likely used to fasten the myriad tiny buttons on gloves bears English hallmarks; it is hallmarked with the anchor for Birmingham; the lion passant for sterling silver; and the letter 'C' for 1902.

The handle is made of banded agate and is a work of art in itself- the colours vary from reddish-brown, chocolate brown to deep orange to cream and white, with a little pale yellow. The banded contrasting colours is quite striking.

The sterling silver hook features a hand-engraved pattern to cap with polished ball and hook.
