Ethandun Metal Gifts


Metalwork inspired by the Anglo Saxon period made by self-taught Blacksmith Peter Hailstone at Station Yard, Edington - less than half a mile away from the battle site where Alfred's army defeated Guthrum's men at the Battle of Ethandun in 878 AD.

The pieces which are largely bare steel with just a little decoration are both attractive and practical for the home, combining old and modern techniques to produce designs evocative of the Anglo Saxon era. Each item, or set, features a replica Alfred penny to celebrate the significance of his achievement here in Ethandun.

The Single Coat Hook

The single coat hook is more simple in its form. A single piece of square bar is used to encircle the disc with replica Alfred coin then turns down through a twist to form a hook with a flattened and rolled tip strong enough to hold the heaviest of coats and bags.


The colours of Blue and Gold were chosen for decoration as they sit so well together in the famous Alfred Jewel found in Somerset.

The bare steel has been finished with a Beeswax polish to protect it from surface rust.

Single Coat Hook - £21.
