A new craft object sure to catch you by surprise...
New hand forged cod jigger coat hooks are now available for the very first time here at King's Point Pottery Fine Craft Gallery. It may look a lot like the plain old 17th century cod jigger but it is so much more! The fish shaped portion is still poured from the traditional lead material into original molds but now it also covered with a protective varathane (safety) coating. The hook portion is made from blunt (not sharp at all) iron... but still looks (and weights) very similar to the overall original cod jigger, except of course now it is designed to catch plenty of coats, hats, and such.
They are some nice! The absolute perfect thing for the bigger boat, the cabin in the woods, the shed or even the nice house in town. A brand new NL tradition for young and old alike.
