LOVELY ANTIQUE STERLING HANDLE with ELABORATE ROSE DESIGN
My Grandmother was an avid crocheter and she collected sterling handled ox bone crochet hooks all of her long life. She had a huge collection. This is one of her beloved antique sterling & bone crochet hooks. Many of her hooks have found new homes and everyone loved them.
This pretty sterling handle has an ox bone hook....and it is in excellent condition. The handle is adored with pretty roses, leaves & fronds. It ismarked "Sterling" along with a manufacturers mark that I can not decipher.
Overall it measures9" in length. Just the sterling handle measures 3" long. This is a larger size sterling & bone crochet hook....in fact, it is one of the largest in my Grandmother's collection. It would be a very nice hook for working with light to medium weight yarn.
The hook portion is made of ox bone. It is hand carved so there is no size marked on the hook. It is comparable to a vintage Susan Bates aluminum hook that is marked "F". The bone hook shaft is smooth and has mellowed to a rich antique color. It has a few decorate carved rings that add to the overall loveliness. The sterling handle does not have any monogram, but there is a small cartouche that is blank, so you definitely could have it antique hook is ready for you to use and wouldn't it make a fine addition to someone's collection. If you like it in the photos I think you will be pleased with your purchase.
STERLING & BONE CROCHET HOOKS ARE QUITE UNIQUE AND DIFFICULT TO FIND.
WOULDN'T THIS MAKE A WONDERFUL GIFT FOR SOMEONE WHO LOVES TO CROCHET AND ALSO APPRECIATES FINE ANTIQUES!!!
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS GUARANTEED TO BE AN AUTHENTIC VICTORIAN CROCHET HOOK. SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST I HAVE SEEN BUTTON HOOKS BEING REFERRED TO AS "CROCHET HOOKS".....DON'T BE FOOLED BY MISLEADING DESCRIPTIONS....THIS BEAUTIFUL ITEM IS EXACTLY WHAT IT IS STATED TO BE.....A CROCHET HOOK - NOT A BUTTON HOOK.
