Black Coat Hook
Our large rustic 7-inch double black coat hook with vintage acorn tips. the hooks cast in heavy duty iron with a matt black oil finish. Perfect for anywhere in your hallway for hanging hats and coats. Fixing screws are provided.
This is a large black coat hook measuring 17 cm from the top of the black upper hook to the bottom of the lower hook. The antique hook extends 9.5 cm from the base plate and unusually the lower hook actually protrudes slightly further than the upper hook arm. The traditional hook arms measure 0.7 cm in diameter and the decorative acorn ends are 1.6 cm across. The lower antique part of the hook has a generous 5.5 cm clearance from the upper hook. This makes it very easy to hang larger items such as hats or umbrellas from it.
Our cast iron coat hooks are all hand forged. They will be similar will not be identical. Each traditional piece is hand finished and given a beeswax coating. All our hand forged cottage products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
We have been able to source a small foundry to make these hooks for us. The foundry is made up of artisan craftsmen who are as enthusiastic about our products as we are. This will show in the quality if the finished product. Once complete each item is hand cleaned and hand polished. After this process, the hooks are dipped in hot black oil. The hot black oil dipping is a very old and traditional way of treating cast iron. The hot oil does two things. Firstly it prevents excessive rusting and secondly, it gives the cast iron a more uniform colour. As these products are oil-coated they will need a wipe with a soft cloth before being used for the first time.
