Cow Horn Button Hook

Cow Horn Button Hook

By Hook Or By Crook You Will Get Those Boots On!

This handmade buttonhook has been made from quality stainless steel and an exquisite ox horn handle has been added making this not only useful but beautiful too.

Although buttons are known from the 13th century, the first reference to a buttonhook is in the early 17th century, and its origins remain unexplored. It is possible that buttonhooks were first designed or required in the 16th century, when stout leather military jerkins and tough civilian garments were in use, and it is likely that the button hook survived until the 1800’s in association with the military buff coat, also with gaiters and leggings.

The perfect gift for a lady or gentleman.
