Heart Shaped Horseshoe Coat Hook
A pretty, functional hook made from a used horseshoe.
It has quite a deep hook meaning you have no items slipping off!
Perfect for coats, aprons, dog leads, headcollars and much more. For use in the Boot Room, Hallway, Kitchen, Yard or Shed or anywhere you see fit.
The shoe is first heated and cleaned, and then hand forged into a heart shape. A piece of round steel is then also forged into a hook shape with decorative scroll detail on the end. Both pieces are securely welded together to form a strong durable hook that will last a lifetime. Each heart hook uses one horseshoe.
The hook measures approximately 13.5cm in height and 11.5cm at it’s widest points.
The hearts have a hole at the top to enable them to be secured to the wall.
These can also be made using your own horseshoes. However, if you would like to do this, please check the measurements as there are two size variants 13cm wide and under shoes are £19 and Large (over 13cm) £25. Please select this from the drop-down below and contact me to make the arrangements for this. We charge slightly more for this service so that we can return your product by Special Delivery as we know the sentiment behind your shoes.
Unless otherwise stated all our products have been made from used, lucky horseshoes. Only used shoes are said to be lucky as the ‘luck is struck into the shoe with every footfall of the horse’.
Every shoe has been heated and cleaned to remove dirt and rust. It is then heated and hand forged to shape. Once forged each is filed and burnished to remove sharp edges making the piece tactile and safe to touch. Every piece is then treated with a clear sealant suitable for exterior and interior use.
However, if you do mean to keep you piece outside we do recommend retreating it a couple of times a year (especially within the UK!) with a clear lacquer suitable for exteriors to stop a tarnish developing.
