Solid brassChristmas Nutcracker Stocking Holder. Exclusively from Jefferson Brass Company, this stocking hanger is cleverly engineered and will support any amount of weight without leaving unsightly nail holes or marring the mantel top. IMPORTANT NOTE: For mantel ledges more than 2" thick, please call our toll free number 877-822-7277 for options. Measures 3" high. Weighs 0.63 lbs.
How It Works: The figure only is the measurement we describe online. The hook that we sell fits most traditional mantels which are 2" thick or less. In order for these solid brass stocking hangers to "work," the flat edge of the top of the hook where the figure sits needs to sit all the way back on the mantel top so that the hook itself drops down and returns slightly aft of the edge of the mantel. This allows the center of gravity to be aft of the edge and actually permits the hanger to support almost unlimited weight.
Because of the handcrafted workmanship of each piece, you may occasionally be able to discern very small inclusions, imperfections, and even slight size variations. This is to be expected, and we ask that you understand that they are an inherent part of the manufacturing process. Our products are solid brass, and we believe they are the best that can be made today. They sell themselves...just pick one up. Feeling is believing! If you receive one that has a slight discoloration, it is not a defect. It has travelled over 8,000 miles from the factory to our warehouse. Use a metal polish, such as Brasso or Wenol, to correct any discoloration.
