A rare set of circa 1868 Gutta Percha, Thermaplast Picture Hooks. The Picture Hooks feature a star motif with gilt gold highlights. They are straight shafts with a threaded head, each measures 3" long overall (one is slightly shorter) and the decorative front is 1" in diameter. They are signed "Patented January 7 1868". All 4 Picture Hooks are in very good overall condition. The only thing to note is some wear to the gilt gold. They need to be cleaned, I didn't want to damage the gold so I will leave it to the new owner. Gutta Percha is fragile and prone to chipping, this set is quite rare. Please see my seller's list for other Gutta percha items all of which came from the same estate.
