I need to find (x2) a brass hat & coat hook which is identical to this one. I found one or two places online but they are in the UK. Any ideas?

Order them from the UK?  Or try a demolitions place.

Looks like something you might find at a building recycler, if you were lucky. The identical requirement will make it difficult, maybe easier to buy 4 new that look similar to that but identical to each other?

That is one very close to what I am needing. Wonder how I can make it look a bit more vintage looking.

I should of said that I spent a morning going around all the local demolitions place I know of in the Hutt Valley and did not have any luck.

Ordering from the UK is cheaper including the delivery but it's the time factor for delivery that irks me.

Mail delivery from the UK is usually very quick. In my experience, around 6-7 days is quite normal, unless things are being sent by iParcel (Amazon). It can take longer of course, depending on how unlucky you are.

Going a bit off topic, My parents sent a shoe boxed size package to me and it took over seven weeks. But that was because is was sent via International Economy.
