Antique Silver SHOE BUTTON HOOK Store Giveaway Old Tool - eBay (item 310070697281 end time Aug-01-08 17:51:30 PDT)
This vintage button hook is possibly sterling silver, has the hook on one end and a hole for hanging it up on the other end. It's marked, "Elsworth & Son, Sole Agency, Holland, N.Y." on one side of the handle and "'Queen Quality' Shoes" on the other side of the handle.
Miles didn't come up with this item. Joe's aunt fished it up out of her long-held possessions. She's 87 years old, didn't say whether she used it personally and I didn't ask. I looks like a free giveaway from the shoe store way back when.
