I ordered two to hang from the mantel on the fireplace for mitten and hat drying. We don't have room on the floor.The hanger seems well made. Round stock for both the vertical and horizontal pieces. Horizontals welded to the vertical hanger. The hanger is about 18" top to bottom, but if you add the S hook they send along it is closer to 24" top to bottom total. The side hangers range from 5 1/2" at the top to 7 1/2" long at the bottom. The loops or curls at the end of the side hangers are 2 1/2" top to bottom, so if you have gloves or mittens with narrow openings, you will need to pull them on rather than simply drop them on. The iron has a slightly rough texture on the surface. I dangerously assume this I the rust resistant finish? In any case, it is rough enough to cause my hats and gloves to catch and tug when I put them on or take them off. Just enough to make it annoying. I have other cast pieces and this roughness is unusual. It hangs straight if you load both sides evenly. It hangs just a little off kilter if you load only one side, but not bad at all (see photo). Overall I think it will do what I need it to do and I think it looks nice. My biggest gripe is that the info on the product listed on Amazon specifically says that the hanger is "crafted in our New England forge." Well, for that to be true, the New England forge that they refer to is located in India because the sticker on the packaging says "Made in India." Really disappointed and more than a little peeved at that. And for that, they lost 2 stars. It the mitten hanger had been made in New England, as stated, I would have given it 4 stars...removing one for the roughness of the metal.
Love love this. Needed something to hand stockings on since we do not have a fireplace. Sturdy and functional. Perfect height for this task.
I have 7 stockings and I was a bit worried about only having 6 hooks for them. But Christmas stockings were hung, filled, and emptied without any problems. The stand is nice and sturdy as long as I didn't leave all the weight to one side, which seemed like common sense! Great looking stand!
I love buying items from small businesses that are family owned. The stocking stand looks so pretty in my living room. I just love it. My only problem (very small) is I can't get the screw that holds the stand upright to tighten. There were no instructions so not sure how tight the screw should tighten but it does wobble a bit. I also like that you care about my satisfaction. I'm not often asked for feedback. Thank you and happy holidays.
The stocking holder is quite sturdy, displays very well, and fits the bill for a small apartment. The washer and nut that hold the pole to the base could be improved with larger diameters to better allow the pole to stand at a 90 degree angle to the floor. I had read about "tilting" in other customer reviews. However, the tilt is minor and certainly not worth returning the product.
I saw a different one at a friends house and my families stockings were the one thing I had not put up yet and I knew it would be perfect. This stand is perfect! It was super easy to assemble, my 4 year old actually helped me. It's a bit taller than I expected (thus why my picture is so you can see the height). People that have seen it have complimented on how nice it is and what a great idea it is. I highly recommend it.
Arrived quickly. Worked great as stocking holder. Using it now as a small lantern holder with coastal decor. Very heavy duty.
Cute way to display stockings. Hanging the family stockings over the fireplace isn't an option for us because we like to keep our fireplace roaring. Always made me too nervous. Then, when Christmas was over, I moved it to the foyer to use as a coat hanger.
Perfect for those who don't want to hang stockings on fireplace
