S P E C S

This is lump bituminous coal in 1 inch to 2 inch nuggets. Size will vary piece by piece.

Each linen bag is stamped with the word "COAL" in lower-case letters.

Each bag has at least 3 pieces of coal in it.

C H R I S T M A S C O A L

The tradition of giving coal for Christmas has ties to Holland with Sinterklaas, Germany with Sankt Nikolaus, and Santa Claus in the United States and the world over.

It's suspected that it came about out of convenience. To send a signal to bad children, a piece of coal (already near the stove or fireplace) would be placed in a stocking or box in place of a better present.

Nowadays coal is used mostly as a gag gift or joke for "naughty" adults and kids alike. And a coal bag isn't limited to Christmastime. You can give someone coal for their birthday, anniversary, wedding present, or performance review at work.

Tread lightly and know your audience. =]

B I T U M I N O U S C O A L

Bituminous coal is easier to ignite, but faster burning than anthracite coal.

Often used in blacksmithing to get iron hot enough to hammer into shape on an anvil.

The hooks are gorgeous and so well made, I changed up how I planned to use them so I could see them better. Lovely!

The perfect anniversary gift for our 6th! I was looking for something small and useful, and made of iron for my husband, and this was perfect! They went above and beyond to make sure I got it before our anniversary (I was pushing it late to keep a small surprise) and it turned out perfect! The chords are from our first dance and I couldn't be happier!

Absolutely stunning work! Perfect for my little atrium project, they are front and center when you walk in the front door! After sending back four different hooks I’m happy to have finally found some to proudly hang in my home. Also love the personal touch of a note Thank you!

I special ordered these brackets from Terran to hang a large, antique ladder. He listened, was communicative, and prompt - absolutely wonderful to collaborate with and I couldn’t be happier!!! They are beautiful and sturdy and perfectly compliment the aesthetic of our home. Cant wait to figure out another project that will use Terran’s stellar craftsmanship!
