Because this hook is attached to a bolt, it probably came off of a hall tree furniture that backed up to a wall. You know, the ones that had the boot box, mirror, and umbrella stand. The hook is inserted from the front of the furniture and then tightened into place with the nut. It is the Eastlake pattern which dates this hook to around 1870 to1890.
The hook projects from the back plate 3 3/4 inches. The upper arm turns upward 2 1/4 inches. The pattern has the recognized Eastlake daisy.
The back plate measures 1 1/4 inches round and has two grippers that dig into the wood. The bolt is two inches long with threads for one inch. The nut is old and original. The hook is iron, but appears to have had a bronze finish at one time.
We have only dusted this authentic hook.
