Old French "patères"

I have a thing for old French coat/hat hooks (and dress forms, hat stands, shoe forms....).

You can find them everywhere in my home.

In the house-entry.

On the kitchen door.

Some of them have small porcelain knobs.

Last week I found these 3 hooks in a French "brocante" shop for 15 euro + 5 euro shipping cost (I have seen them in US shops for 120$ per piece!).

If you like them too, they are called
"patère ancienne" in French.
