VERY RARE AND THE ONLY SET I HAVE SEEN THAT IS INTACT !
You are viewing an antique circa 1920s art deco era SOLID 14K YELLOW GOLD AND STAINLESS STEEL CROCHET HOOK NEEDLE KIT, FROM SHREVE & COMPANY SAN FRANCISCO.
Please view all photos as they let you know what you will receive and are the primary and integral part of the description. There are no markings for 14k on these antiques, Due to the fact that back in early 1900s, laws were not established as to mandatory karat gold markings, etc.
Also, it would be quite difficult to mark the pieces due to their fine tubular shape. I have tested this kit personally and guarantee it is 14k gold.
This was confirmed and to clarify, the pieces that are solid 14kt gold are the handle and the protective cover (or "cap"). (The 1st photo shows the handle and cap attached together -- The longest pieces in photo.) Over 4" long. I have weighed the two gold pieces at a total of 4.5 grams. This kit appears to be handmade. Surely, these must have been made for the highly privileged! These are high-quality pieces! The hook needle pieces were strategically made in stainless steel for strength and lasting durability.
This is an amazing travel set of six (6) interchangeable crochet hooks made by the oldest commercial establishment in San Francisco, California -- Shreve & Company. Two brothers George and Samuel Shreve established this company in 1852. The Shreve Jewelry Company was considered among the finest silversmiths in the United States, setting high quality timepieces, gold, and silver jewelry, aside from diamonds and precious stones. The brown travel box measures 5.25" long, 2.25" wide, and about 1.25" high. It has a working push-button metal closure. Please go to the internet for more company information and history.
The hooks do not indicate their sizes like the ones you see on the market these days. The smallest hook is .5 mm and the largest is 1.5 mm. These were/are ideal hooks for crocheting hand-made fine lace. Please see the last photo showing a hook size chart. THIS CROCHET HOOK SET IS NOT ONLY FUNCTIONABLE, BUT WOULD ALSO BE A GREAT ADDITION TO YOUR ROARING 20'S COLLECTIBLE MEMORABILIA.
