Here's everything you needed to get your shoes on circa 1899 in Birmingham England. This vintage all-in-one-piece accessory is both a button hook and a shoe horn at opposite ends. They're made of steel.
In between the steel accessories of this long piece is a sterling silver decorative repousse section with a beautiful angel's face and wings on each side.
The center is hallmarked with the maker's name...? & S, the lion passant for sterling, the date letter ~Z~ which is the one for 1899, and the anchor for Birmingham.
The long hook / horn measures 1 1/2 inches at the widest and 14 inches long. This has been highly polished which has removed most signs of age except for the tip of the buttonhook which shows that this hooked up a lot of Victorian lace-up boots and/or corsets.
Excellent antique condition. This is an unusual piece as most of these accessories were made in sets with two separate pieces.
