eBay watch: 1970s teak coat rack


Functional design, but also something of a statement for your hallway wall too – this 1970s teak coat rack.

It's the kind of thing you would expect to find in some architect-designed home of the era. Who knows, that could be the kind of place it has come from. But it's on eBay now and available for a modest outlay.

The coat rack consists of nine rectangular wooden panels and two wooden bars, all are finished with teak laminate and mounted onto a metal frame. There is also a top shelf (for hats & gloves) made of the same material. The four aluminium hooks are removable and can be placed on any of the panels as and when they are needed.

All of that can be fixed to a wall with two screws, according to the seller. That same seller says the rack is in 'very good condition' with 'minor wear' and 'some scratching on the top shelf'. But as you can't see that high up, you'll get away with it. It stands around 105cm high and 80cm wide, with the current price at 99 pence.
