Traditional hook. Our traditional hook is a vintage rustic hook. It has an antique traditional old style. The hook is wrought iron. By the term wrought iron, we refer to the fact that the hook has been hand forged. The hook is hand forged by artisan blacksmiths. Once the hook is forged it is treated with a coating of traditional bees-wax.
The bee’s wax serves two purposes. The first thing the bee’s wax does is to darken the wrought iron and make the colour uniform. The second thing the bee’s wax does is to seal the hook from the elements. Sealing the hook prevents rusting. This hook will have an aged and timeless look and feel to it. Once in place will look old and original. As with all hand forged products treated with wax, some element of rusting will appear. This will be under the wax and will add to the hooks charm. As the hooks are all hand-made they will be similar but not identical.
As these vintage hooks are surface mounted fitting is relatively simple. A fixing screw is provided. If you are fitting these black hooks to a wall please be aware of water pipes and electrical cables. These old hooks may be fitted both internally and externally. If fitted outside they will after a period of time develop some surface rust. This is normal and will not affect the integrity of the hook.
