Victorian Coat Hook
Our antique Victorian coat hook is simply a cast iron hook in heavy-duty iron with a matt black oil finish.
This is a traditional style Victorian coat hook for a classic vintage finish to your home. Old cottage fixing screws are provided.
This old style simple yet classic double armed coat hook measures 12cm from top to bottom and extends 8cm from the base plate. The lower arm offers a depth of 4cm.
Our cast 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 hand-forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
We are very pleased to have found a small foundry that now makes these hooks for us. We have spent a long time looking for a producer of these hooks. We were looking for a foundry that had the skill to make these hooks, but more importantly for us somebody that was passionate about cast iron. In this foundry, we have found both.
Once each item has been cast it is then hand polished and hand cleaned. Once this process is complete the hooks are now dressed. To dress our hooks we use hot black oil. Hot black oil is the most traditional and ancient way of preserving cast iron. The oil tempers the iron and although still brittle makes it less so. The oil also gives the iron an even colour. As these hooks are hand cast and hand finished they will be very similar but not identical.
When you purchase these old vintage hooks you will be supplied with the correct amount of fixings. In this case, the fixings will be screws. The screws will be old style cottage black they will have a domed black head.
