Acorn Coat Hook
Our 5-inch rustic coat hook is a vintage acorn ended rustic double coat hook. It is cast in heavy duty black iron with a matt black old oil finish. The antique vintage double rustic coat hook is ideal for adding to your traditional hallway coat hooks or just gives you extra space for an additional jacket. The cottage base plate is pre-drilled and fixings are provided.
This is a mid-sized rustic coat hook measuring 13cm from the top of the upper hook to the bottom of the lower hook. The black hook extends 7.5cm from the base plate and unusually the lower hook actually protrudes slightly further than the old upper hook arm. The hook arms measure 0.7cm in diameter and the antique decorative acorn ends are 1.4cm across. The lower hook has 4cm clearance from the upper hook making it very easy to hang larger items such as hats or umbrellas from it. If you are looking for a traditional larger hook our 7″ Acorn Coat Hook may be suitable.
Our rustic iron coat hooks are all hand cast. So though similar will not be identical. Each piece is hand finished and given an oil coating. All our cast products are carefully aged for an authentic look. We have found a small foundry that we now use to produce these hooks for us. The foundry is run by artisan casters who have both the passion and the skill to produce these handles.
Once these hooks have been cast they are dipped in hot black oil. This is a very old and traditional method of treating cast iron. The hot oil protects the iron from the atmosphere, thus helping to protect the hinge from rust. The oil also gives the hook an even colour.
Fixing screws are included
