Victorian Antique Cast Iron & Oak Equestrian Horse Saddle Rack & Bridal Hook
These are original Victorian 19th century pivoting saddle stands, which also offer a bridal hook directly beneath the wooden saddle stand. They can pivot into 3 different positions, the cast iron bracket has 3 notches, allowing the spiked wooden saddle stand to be positioned facing left, right or straight out when the spike is placed into the cast iron mounting bracket. The cast iron bracketed mounts were originally painted with Victorian pitch, when in the stable block, these have been cleaned and finished in a traditional iron paste, there are still elements of the original paint and some surface rust present. The wooden mounts are hardwood in oak, with the exception of one that is pine. These have been cleaned and finished with a clear coat of beeswax. There are still elements of original paint present, however most of the paint is not present due to historic wear and use. There is also some splitting in the oak, however they remain extremely strong and robust and ready for use. The wall fixing plates are of heavy cast and as such remain extremely strong and robust. The plates have cast fixing holes, the lower part of the fixing plate has a small iron ledge cast on the reverse to help secure to the wall. There are 4 mounts available, the price is for 1 mount.
