Ancient Mariner Vintage Wooden Wall Coat Rack and Shelf
This coat rack is a natural wood solid product and therefore will have unique patterns, grain variations, and occasional knots in the wood surface. This will not have any impact on durability, strength and integrity of the furniture.
Wood lives on in the furniture and it breathes and moves over time so minor movements that may occur are totally natural. This range is trying to reproduce historic furniture and thus in natural wood you will get surface scratches and marks from everyday use. We hope you will love these the marks as a historic record of good honest furniture use.
Following purchase aftercare:
– This coat rack is made from natural wood and had been hand scrubbed to produce an authentic honest vintage look. It therefore has no sealant on the surface.
– If you accidentally spill something on the surface please use 1/3 bleach 1/3 water and 1/3 ecover detergent and very gently scrub the surface with the grain and leave to dry. Over scrubbing may reveal the redder tones of the solid wood beneath.
– For everyday use wipe clean with a damp cloth. Any splits can be filled with matching colour bee’s wax.
– Excess heat, sunlight and dryness in an unventilated room can cause the wood to split so avoid placing your furniture close to heat sources use mats and coasters when placing hot drinks onto the surface to avoid ring marks.

why we love Ancient Mariner
Ancient Mariner Furniture is a family-run business responsible for the manufacture and wholesale of handmade furniture and accessories, personally selected and sourced from around the globe. The journey started in 1945, when their Grandad returned home from WW2. He decided to take his furniture from the front room, put it in the shop window and start trading. They have come a long way since then – the business evolved into a wholesaler 25 years ago and it is currently being run by the 3rd generation of the Ellis family. Their love of travel and exploration took them to Indonesia 25 years ago. It was there that they started working with Indonesian artisan suppliers, eventually forming a network of trusted suppliers.
Ethics: Ancient Mariner has created many jobs for communities in Indonesia. Working closely with local craftsmen and women, their aim is to partner directly with the makers and support traditional ways of life. Ancient Mariner is invested in helping to improve education standards and skills within the local villages they work with, as well as providing steady long-term employment for all of their employees.
Sustainability: As they continue to grow as a company, they are aware of the increasing strain on the environment caused by the depletion of natural resources such as forests and woodlands. With this in mind, all the materials sourced are from government-sanctioned plantations, using only the highest quality recycled Mango, Mahogany and Teak.
