Glove or Button Hook

$ 30.00

Glove Hook or Button Hook, ca. 1910s, steel with bakelite handle and enamel decoration.  Hooks such as this one had multiple uses when both men and women wore clothes and accoutrements with many small linking parts; one such use was to pull gloves tight over the wrist.  This particular hook is special in that its handle is made of bakelite, the fist mass-produced plastic, which was only invented in 1907; hence, it is probably one of the earliest examples of bakelite one can find.
