We have used these on countless projects. The cast iron hand hook makes a statement out of whatever you hang from it. We adore it with a porthole mirror or as the collectors of all the things in a mud room. We've even hung one just to host an air plant (of course). These guys are heavy so you want to take that into account when you consider what you're hanging on it. Hang them with the palm up or facing to the left. Either way, they will get some applause!
I love this hook! It's just as described, and they aren't wrong about it being heavy! This will be going into a stud so I'm not concerned, but be warned. It looks great, is very unique, and well made. Would recommend!
