This very neat cast iron hall-tree hook is designed to hold a lot of weight. The iron was originally rubbed (or coated) with a bronze-colored finish. There is a pattern on the arms of the hook.
The mounting back plate has holes for two good-sized screws. The distance between the holes is 3 inches. The long upper arms extend 4 inches from the back plate and the two lower arms extend 1 1/4 inches. Only the screw holes but up against the tree. The rest of the back piece bows slightly from the surface.
This is a fine antique.
