Antique sewing tool, a small clamp with hook. This is hand wrought, iron with silver plating. This delicate little clamp features a heart as the thumb screw. The business end is a hook, perhaps for holding netting? The size of this clamp is 2.75 inches when threaded closed. 3.25 inches when threaded all the way open. The C clamp is 1.25 inches in diameter. This piece is forged of steel or iron with a silver or nickel plating. Of course it has been used for well over 125 years, so some of the plating has worn off. But all in all, perfect condition. When I look with a magnifying glass, I can see how fine the hand made threads are on the screw. It works perfectly.
