On the other hand, to see the industrial revolution of this object, we must go back to the beginning of the 900s. In the poorest houses, coat hooks and coat hangers were formed from a simple piece of wood, quite regular, where the we fixed large nails spaced. They were used either vertically or horizontally, with a base planted in the wall. Those who wanted something less rustic, fixed iron hangers of different sizes to a wooden table: the tables could be smooth, as they could represent carved decorations on the sides. The slightly more elaborate elements were also equipped with hats: inverted L-shaped, and fixed to the wall. On the upper floor, the hats were placed and in the lower part were the hooks, which could be wood or iron, where you could hang the clothes. During the Belle Epoque, we created panels that contained: the hat-holder at the top, buttons to hang coats in the middle, panels decorated on the sides, in a typical style of the time, both in wood and glass. In public places, such as the theater or the hotels, the use of coat racks that, once occupied, thanks to the wheels they had at the base, could be easily moved, to free space .
