Spencer Thorn are specialist manufacturers of Napkin Hooks otherwise known as Serviette clip, serviette hook. Dress accessories for men and women. Our range of unusual items include silver mussel eaters, walnut openers and Cornish jewellery.
Napkin hooks have been in existence from at least the 1600s. They became fashionable in Victorian times and remained so until the late thirties.
We have been making them now since 1990.
Our Original Napkin Hook, shown here, is based upon a design found in an old catalogue from 1935 which has been in our archives since that time. The design and application has been improved to provide a durable, practical and stylish item. One improvement has turned the hook through 90 degrees so that it is nice and flat in ones pocket when not in use without affecting the use of the Napkin Hook
The Original Napkin Hook is a rare addition to the small list of mens jewellery which can be used on all formal and informal occasions. It measures approximately 2 inches long (50mm) in hook version.
