An extraordinary antique sterling Art Nouveau button hook c1900.
The gorgeous woman design is the same on both sides.
Her serene face peeks out from layered swirls that curl around a polished dome that was most likely meant for the engraving of an initial to personalize the piece.
The swirls continue as the handle tapers and then gets larger where the hook meets the sterling.
The sterling handle and hook portion are both in amazing, clean condition, no damage, dings or dents on either side.
Marked sterling on both sides but without a makers hallmark.
Measures 8.25" total length, the sterling handle is 4&1/8" by 1&1/8", the remainder is the hook which is most likely polished steel.
A fine quality Victorian Art Nouveau button hook with a fabulous sterling handle.
