|This is a rare Victorian sterling dinerís napkin hook with a patent date of 1879. A real conversation starter! Dinerís napkin hooks have been in existence since the 17th century, but were all the rage during the Victorian era. To keep from spilling food on their finery, gentlemen simply attached their napkin to the clip on one end and then put the small hook over the top of their collars. Condition: excellent. Measurement: 2 _ in. long.|
