Handmade Victorian antique pine Coat Rack

Handmade Victorian antique pine Hat & Coat Rack (SH0338)

This beautiful hat & coat rack is made from a section of Victoirian antique pine. Taken from a table that resided in our family kitchen for over 60 years, the table was already old when purchased. (I'm not actually that old but my mother-in-law is). Sacreligiously topped with Formica back in the sixties, removing it revealed this gorgeous antique wood. All the smooth indentations were hand rubbed and are actually the result of smoothing out jagged edges. The lovely honey-coloured finish was produced with Rustic Pine Briwax, which polishes and stains in one go. This can dull down over time but is easily revived with beeswax polish or further applications of Briwax.

The hooks are a Victorian-era design made in cast iron. With their hammered finish, they are a perfect compliment to the imperfectly smooth wood. Finished with Clear Briwax beeswax polish, this is to protect the metal and to heighten the look of the raw iron. The four-screw back-plates add strength as well.
