I found these on etsy, from the same seller. They were each under $15, and I thought they were really neat.
About the awl, the seller says: "Lovely old silver handled awl with embossed decorative handle.
The awl would have been part of a sewing set, probably late Victorian or
possibly Edwardian, used for making holes in embroidery or tatting. The
handle has a set of English hallmarks: the anchor showing it was made
in Birmingham, and the lion showing it was made of silver, but the date
letter is unclear. Ornate and very pretty scrolly pattern is embossed.
The handle fits a plain steel awl, with a fairly blunt rather than sharp
point. . Size 4" (11 cm) long from top to bottom...."
And about the button hook: "Lovely Victorian child's button hook with carved mother of pearl handle. The
tool is just 3" (7.5 cm) long, about half which is the metal hook, and
half is the elaborately carved handle. The join is covered by a tiny
decorative metal band. The button hook was used for pulling tiny boot
buttons through small holes. They were often part of sewing sets. This
one is so small it was probably a child's, or part of a small
I really love both pieces!
