Weathered and Patinated Carved Birch and Wrought Iron
A naturally formed hook with its original hand wrought iron fixing and loop, this organically formed “tool” would have been made and used for hanging fishing nets and ropes in a fisherman’s shed. Now rare as such objects were discarded as obsolete and old fashioned as new materials became readily available.  However, now historic every day working objects have now taken on a great appeal to collectors, for their inherent sculptural qualities and textures as well as their historical narrative. This example shows signs of wear and use commensurate with age and function.
