Help the environment by purchasing these up-cycled antique railroad spikes!
These are wonderful hooks designed from antique railroad spikes. The beautiful blackened metal creates a nice wrought iron look. These high carbon steel nails were originally made for the Southern Pacific Railroad in the late 1800s (circa 1880s) for the steam train tracks. A very unusual usage that makes the perfect gift for a Railroadiana collector or old train enthusiast, these are rustic and primitive antiques that look great in an industrial loft, vintage apartment, hunting lodge, farm cabin, man cave, or garage shop.
Hole pre-drilled in each for added stability, with matching screws included!
These are individually hand-crafted by our wood/metal artist, so some natural variation occurs- every railroad spike was actually used as part of the train tracks, and is unique, usually measuring around 2.5" out, and around 5.5" long, and each weighing 10-13oz. with at least 1" clearance on the inside. The hook knobs are around 1.5" by 1.5" and usually taller than wide, but since being hit by a sledge hammer when installed in the railroad, then heated in a wood forge, bent, and drilled- none are exactly the same size.
All of these measurements can vary by up to 1/2", so please make allowances for this. All train nail heads look different.
Please note: These hooks get washed after the forging process however, they still are rustic and unsealed- these actually are antique metal, and have the patina to match their age. This may include left over wood ash, spots of rusty color, rough surfaces, etc. They will need oiled or finished before use with clothing, towels, outdoors, high humidity environments, etc.
