Buttonhooks

This special exhibition brings together a remarkable collection belonging to members of The Buttonhook Society. Buttonhooks were once an essential part of every stylish person’s wardrobe, and were used for closing the buttons on boots, shoes and gloves. They came in a range of beautiful and bizarre designs, featuring animals, semi-precious stones, fine metalwork and even World War I trench art!

This exhibition takes place alongside ‘Swindon in the Frame’ in our temporary exhibition galleries on the Ground Floor.
