Bakelite Shoe Button Hook


Shipping to United States: $5.60

This is a shoe button hook from the 20s or 30s. It is 8" long, the bakelite handle is 4.25". There is a round stain on one side of the handle. It is ivory colored with the faint stripes in it. It is 7/8" wide at the widest part.

Please note that this is truly Bakelite. I see a lot of "bakelite" on Etsy that there is no way it is Bakelite. I am a formally educated antique dealer and a certified appraiser. I have seen and tested a lot of Bakelite and a lot that isn't. Please be careful with what you buy on-line.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my refund for a damaged product.

I will happily refund for anything damaged during shipping. However, I must receive pictures of the damage, the box and the wrapping. I will refund you as soon as I receive this in order to file a claim with USPS or Shipsurance.

How much is a custom mermaid?

It depends on the size and the work involved. Custom mermaids start at $50.

I saw an item like this on EBay for less. Can you match the price?


Can you hold an item until I get paid?

No. I have done this before, taken the item out of inventory and then the person never bought. This causes me to have to pay to re-list the item and miss out on other potential sales. Please do not ask me to do this.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I do!
