Item details

Silver awl/punch. This came with a mixed lot of silver sewing tools. It's got a blunt end, so I imagine it would be used for punching holes in fine material such as cotton lawn?

Has a full hallmark - lion passant, leopard's head (London) and date letter Q for 1990. Weighs 2.8 grams, which is quite light so I think it must be hollow. Length is 7.4 cm (2 & 7/8 inches).

Very good condition. The silver is very tarnished but I leave any cleaning up to the buyer.
