Cup hook hanging hook screw hook vintage rustic antique hook
This Cup hook is part of our range of screw in cup hooks. These hooks come in various sizes from 1″ to 4″. These hooks are easily fixed into beams, under shelves, on to walls, or anywhere else in the home. Depending on the hook size, they can be used to hang a multitude of items. We have even had people using them to support guns and oars on walls.
This is a weighty 4 inch hook with a standard screw thread fixing, ideal for hanging pots and pans in the kitchen, or even supporting a light curtain rail. The handcrafted wrought iron hook is finished with traditional beeswax and has a fine curl detail at the end of the hook. Each hook is individually hand forged in the traditional way on the anvil. The beeswax finish is a traditional way to seal and darken wrought iron metal work. The hooks can be used either indoors or out doors, although if they are used outdoors, after a period of time they will show a coating of rust. This is normal and will not impair the strength of the hook. If it is going to be used outside, you could paint the hook. A rub down with wire wool and a suitable outdoor rust proof paint will maintain the hook.
The thread is 3 cm in length and the exposed section of the hook measures 8 cm by 7 cm. The inner aperture of the hook is 4 cm across and the hook itself is 1 cm in diameter.
As these hooks are hand-made they will show marks of forging and although each hook will be similar they will not be identical. We believe that this adds to the charm that only a hand forged original item can produce.
