These 24 hooks and eyes were made by the De Long Company of Philadelphia. The Patent (USA) is dated 1902 and 1904. The card is interesting b/c of the advertising on both sides. The back includes a French interpretation, as well. All 24 are intact. The Company emphasizes the "hump", the center of the eye. ("See that hump?") It also advertises that these are made of the best brass and that they will not rust. Definitely a collectible for the seamstress! FREE SHIPPING!
I am always out and about, so I will be very prompt in my shipping. If there is a problem, I will certainly contact you....and if you have a special request re: timing, insurance, please contact me without hesitation.
I appreciate your prompt payment. In all of my years of crafting, folk art shows, antique shows, etc. I have never been "stiffed" by a customer, and I imagine that this site will enable me to experience the same good fortune. I will reciprocate with courteous service!
Returns & exchanges
I am unable to accept returns now because, as I said, I have closed the shop and I am completely depleting the inventory. I have been known to make mistakes, however, and if I am in err, I will accommodate you to the best of my ability.
I will offer a tracking number for every purchase, so that you can follow your package across the country!
