This particularly substantial coat rack is made from a lovely English oak floorboard that was removed from a grange building in Wiltshire during restoration work. Conservatively, the wood dates to the early 1700s. Characteristic of this sort of reclaimed wood are nicks, scuffs and dents - even old nail holes - all evidence of the wood's former life under foot. Tellingly, the wood has darkened all the way through the cross-cut, confirming its great age. The rich antique gloss finish was produced with Rustic Pine Briwax, which may dull down over time but is easily revived by buffing, if desired.
Following through with the Gothic-look arrow-head corner cut-outs is an unusual Gothic-design, wrought iron stick peg. Their age is not known but they are solid and heavy and perectly compliment the antique wood. I've waxed them to protect the metal and to lift the blacked, hammered finish. Any Goths out there?
(For aesthetic reasons, the rack attaches to the wall by means of two screws that discreetly utilise one of the peg fixing holes on each end peg)
