This old cast-iron hook we call a “school house hook” because this was the kind of hook that one found in the back of the one-room school houses here on the prairies. It is a very sturdy hook, useful for winter coats, book bags, and lunch pails. This stout hook will hold a lot of weight. This is the two-armed style. Each arm is topped with the acorn motif, which was a symbol for strength and hope.
This hook maintains most of its original black paint. The mounting plate needs two screws and measures 1 7/8 inches vertically and 1 3/4 inches at its widest point. The top, longer arm is 2 1/2 inches long, and the shorter arm is 1 1/4 inches long. The entire hook projects 2 3/4 inches from the surface.
We will include two screws.
