NOTE - You are purchasing a lot of 3 of these button hooks for this price! This is a beautiful little antique metal button hook with the imprinted advertising 'Hurd Shoes are Good Shoes'. The hook is a little under 4 inches long, and is in 'mint, new old stock' condition. I'm guessing the little button hook probably dates from the late 1800s to early 1900s. Not many of these have survived in this 'like new' condition. From my internet research, I believe the company was originally the 'Hurd and Fitzgerald Shoe Company', and was based in Utica, New York - later the name was changed to just the 'Hurd Shoe Company'. Winning bidder to pay $2.00 postage in the US (no additional shipping charge within the US if you purchase more than one), $3.50 elsewhere. NYS residents please add the required sales tax amount. Payment may be made by Paypal in accord with ebay's policy. yOffset = 180; xOffset = -20; $(document).ready(function() { $(".wi_moreimage").hover(function(e){ var bigimage; bigimage = $(this).attr('bigimage'); if( bigimage != "" ) { var infostring ; infostring = ""; var IE6 = false; infostring = "
