Antique French Hand Wrought Game Hook - French Kitchen Hook - One Piece Black Metal Slit into Four Hooks - Forge Made Hook - AQ66
We have for your delight and delectation !! - far better quality than the average hook - this wonderful wrought iron Game Hook was found in a flea market in Central France. Made towards the end of the 1700's by a skilled blacksmith using one single piece of iron to make this four-pronged hook. Forged to a point creating a superb eye at the top to take the round hanging ring, the plain square length of iron has been given a twisted waist and then split into four, rounded and pointed tines. It would cost a fortune and take many craftsman hours to produce such an item now. This hook would look great in a kitchen or could even be used for its original purpose should you with to hang game.
An hand forged item with an honest story that would lend character to a present day setting - the kind of 'steam punk' style that is loved by many.
The patina is just perfect - that well worn look that only comes with true age and constant use.
The tines are 250mm / 10" high, 112mm / 4.25" wide. The hook together with hanging ring weighs 0.25Kg or 0.6lb without packaging.
Your purchase will be very carefully packaged with recycled materials where possible and despatched via the Irish An Post postal service.
