1897 Eye Glass Hook

Something old and special from Vintage Cove - Mens Vintage Jewellery

This amazing little doo-hickey is apparently from around 1900 and is an eye-glass hook.  These hooks were pinned to the clothing and attached to a chain connected to the eyeglasses. See? Ever since glasses were invented, people have been forgetting where they put them. Hence, the invention of the eyeglass chain and hook.

This item is on ebay at Item No 150423784824
