A Woolworth's No. 965-9/H Weaving Loom - original box and with original loom instructions. Loom is all metal and measures 7-1/4 inches square - the two sided hook is 9-1/4 inches. Condition: Box has torn corners, and is in bad shape - red loom is in very good used condition, showing no rust, red paint has runs (manufacturing imperfection). I find no dates on carton or leaflet, original selling price was 49 cents. F.W. Woolworth's was one of America's first five and dime stores and was in business 1879-1997. This item I'd guess dates to the 1960's.

The base measures approximately 1.25 x 2 inches and is marked on the base with an impressed UM Co. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Neat antique button hook (buttonhook) likely used to lace up women's shoes, although some people also use these as crochet hooks in doing crocheting. Has a nifty old turned wood handle with a metal cap underneath the metal button hook part (we don't know what type of metal this is but it is not sterling or silver plate). There are no manufacturers markings to indicate exact age, but from the handle type, old wood and condition, we would guess that this dates to the 1920s period or earlier. Measures about 5 1/4 inches in length, 3/4 inch in width and sits 3/4 inch in height when laying on a table. While all there, this vintage piece does show its age, giving it a great older appearance. There are two elongated cracks in the wood handle starting at the metal cap with lengths of about 1 1/4 inches each. The wood used for the handle itself is of the type that has inset lines in the wood making it look like there are other cracks all over when these are naturally occurring lines which give it character. There are, however, also line cracks on the outer end of the wood handle that are cracks, not natural wood lines. There are two lines encircling the wood handle which were put there when made as part of the design, perhaps to aid in gripping. There is a bit of dark spotting on the wood with other age wear via some scraping/rubbing, etc. The cap itself has two cracks going vertically along its sides like the wood handle, as well as much white/gray spotting/wear and some denting on its topside (the side near the metal rod). You can turn the handle when holding onto the metal hook part; it doesn't come apart and we don't know if it was originally meant to be able to be turned. The metal hook has tarnish/dark spotting, some rusting (not bad) and several tiny indentations/lines/marks/scrapes/denting from use, but no cracks. A nifty vintage piece which was clearly used but this gives it a great old look and believeability of age. A nice addition to any collection of button hooks or wood handled utensils in general.
