During the early 20th Century, the acorn motif was the sign of strength and hope. Here we find this popular symbol on the everyday school house hook. These stout hooks were used in the back of school houses and churches to hold the coats, hats, and mittens of its visitors.
This cast-iron hook is the three-arm style, which is less common the the two-armed ones. Most of the original black paint is still intact on this hook. The back plate is fastened to the wall with two screws, 7/8 inch apart. The plate measures 1 1/2 inches wide and 1 3/4 inches vertically.
The top arm is 3 inches long and the two lower arms curl to 1 1/2 inches. The entire hook projects 3 inches from the surface.
