What Is This?

I thought I would put a picture of something that was my Mother's and see if you know what it is or what it was used for.  Yes, I know what it is, but I bet most of you middle aged and younger readers have never seen or held or used one of these.  But then I may be wrong.  Here is the picture:

Well, have you figured out what it is yet?  Well guess what, I found a picture of one of these for sell on: https://www.etsy.com/market/antique_button_hook

Yep, it is a button hook.  Can be used on blouses, shoes, etc.  How many of you knew what it was and how it was used?  Now, you all have a great day, you hear?

    1. No I didn't, but you didn't tell me how you used it. Did you pick your nose with it? (grin)

    1. Dang, it makes me proud to give you some information that you didn't know. That is something special since you do know a lot.

    1. In this day and age, there is very few uses for them.

  5. I know what it is but haven't used one. I'm thinking it could come in handy if my arthritic fingers get any stiffer ;-) Heck, it looks like it could pull up zippers too....

    1. Yep, it sure could pull up zippers and maybe even pick your nose.
