French wigmaking hooks
These are (I am told) the tools used for making wigs in a bakelite case. They are like very fine crochet hooks, which I suppose you need when working with hair. Each hook has a metal sleeve to protect it. There is nothing to indicate how old they are but from the case I would guess that they are 1920's or 30's.

There are 4 hooks with wooden handles in a bakelite tube case. The largest hook is about 1mm across whilst the smallest is about 0.3mm. They are so fine you can hardly see the hook on the smallest one.

The tube case is a burgundy coloured bakelite with a threaded top, there are no markings on the case. I bought these in France which is why I am describing them as being french. The case is 150mm long and 16mm diameter at the widest point. The longest hook including the cover is 132mm.

The condition of the tube case is very good. One of the hooks has a broken handle.
