18th Century Aglet


( / )


Aglets have a long history.  Used on the ends of lacings they provided a easy method of elaborate lacing used to put clothing together and hold it on the body.  Especially common in the 16th and early 17th century they could be plain to fancy.  In the 18th century we have found them on stay cords of silk and linen. Our aglet is very similar to one we studied in the London Foundlings which was still attached to its dyed red linen stay cord.
