Rustic hook. This hook is one of our classic designs. this rustic, vintage, antique hook is great for all around your home. The old style of the hook is traditional and adds to your home, a cottage feeling. This is one of our small hooks.
The hook is hand forged in the traditional way on the anvil. The hook will show signs of forging. When the hook has been finished it is coated in a natural bees-wax. The bee’s wax does two jobs. Firstly it darkens the wrought iron. Secondly it seals the surface to help protect against rusting.
This is a surface mount hook so is relatively easy to position. If you are fixing it on narrow shelves a small pilot hole would not be a bad idea. This will stop the wood from splitting.
If you are attaching the hook to a wall please watch out for pipes and electrical cables. We have included a fixing screw for you.
Our small rustic hook is very versatile. The hook can be used internally or externally. If used outside after a period of time you will notice surface rust on the hook. The surface rust is normally this is just the bee’s wax breaking down. This will not effect the integrity of the hook it will only add to its charm. If however you wish to paint the hook you can. The best way to go about this is to firstly rub the hook down with some wire wool to remove any debris. A coat of good quality exterior rust proof paint will finish the job.
We have many more hooks on our site both in hand forged wrought iron and in hand cast iron.
