It measures 3 1/2” in length - the sterling silver handle has a length of 2” while the rest is steel. It weighs 4.5 grams. These smaller button hooks were used for gloves, dress buttons, sleeves or shirt collars and are generally called glove hooks. It is in very good condition - note that the hook has a bit of “play” to it.
