This 4 inch antique cabin hook and eye set is ideal for old doors. Hand made in black wrought iron the twist detailing on the vintage fixing plates makes these traditional small hooks an elegant but functional addition to your rustic home.
Each cottage hook is 10 cm long and is 0.6 cm in diameter. The fixing pin is 4 cm long meaning it will fix securely and not easily slip out.
Our cabin hooks are handcrafted so although similar, will not be identical. Each antique cabin hook is finished with a black oil coating in the traditional manner. As with all our products they are unique to us and we hope you will enjoy them.
We have been able to find an artisan blacksmith to make these lovely hooks for us. The blacksmiths are highly trained and skilled in their craft. On top of that they are very passionate in making our rustic, vintage products for us. Each hook is hand forged on the anvil and will show forging marks. Once each piece is completed it is treated with a coating of natural beeswax. The beeswax has two functions. Firstly it will prevent the hook from excessive rust. Secondly it will give the item a uniform colour along it’s length.
You will get a full set of fixings in your package. the fixings will be screws. Our screws are traditional cottage screws and are domed headed with a slotted domed head. We suggest that you always pilot your holes first before attempting to fix your screws. If you pilot first either with a bradawl or small drill you will ensure that the screws are allowed to go in straight. The screw heads will fit flush to the hook base plates and give you a really firm fixing.
We have many other handforged products for you to see on our site please feel free to take a look. Thank you.
