Back-to-school coat rack from Hooked on Hooks

27 Jul

Vintage hat & coat rack made from reclaimed English oak and original school hooks

This distinctive vintage-look coat rack from Hooked on Hooks features original wire school hat & hooks on a sumptuous section of weathered oak. Laboriously restored from beneath stubborn layers of sixties rust and chipped paint, who would have believed that these utilitarian school staples would one day turn into highly sort after collectables? Perfect for any setting – contemporary or traditional – this is the second of only two similar but not identical racks ever produced.

    I remember these hooks, as was a 1960s schoolgirl, and they are so authentic. Love the workmanship and description of the intricacies of a very stylish and nostalgic look.
