Description
This is an interesting and rare example of a brass buttonhook with a finial in the form of the coronation crown and containing a red glass bead, along with repousse head portraits of both King Edward VII & Queen Alexandra in white metal on one side of the top part. The hook was probably originally designed to fasten gloves or dress buttons. The item would have been made as a commemorative piece for the King's coronation in the year 1910. This very attractive little item is in very good condition. There is a split to one side down the collar, extending a little way into the "frame" but everything remains very sound. The item once had a gilt finish but this has now worn. This would make an attractive addition to any dressing table or desk and is an unusual little piece. Ideal for any collector of Royal memorabilia.
