Pirate Sky Hook

Pirate Sky Hook
Ref: TM040 Admittedly one of our in house designers is a Pirate aficionado. Highly judgmental on the required accoutrement, such as eye-patches, parrots, loot and spades, we managed to lad the judges’ approval… Hand cut in recycled steel, hand painted and finished with a rich aged patina. Our Pirate will row and row and row, once set on his voyage. Treasure Island beckoning from beyond the surf…

Princess Sky Hook

Princess Sky Hook
Ref: TM126 In a classic one-day match, the highlight of the annual jousting event in the city of AngoulÍme, France, was when the Duc d’Anjou expertly picked up the red silk scarf. The impact was hard to exaggerate; the spectator crowd collectively held its breath to observe the consequences. Unique conditions prevailed and all worked in the Duc’s favor. A bright sun, the home front’s decisive victory. A bottle of excellent aged claret next to the Princess’ father, the King. The Duc and his Princess became famous in posterity as a romantic pair of courtly lovers. His sword and her silk scarf are displayed in a dedicated room of the National Treasury.

Mermaid Sky Hook

Mermaid Sky Hook
Ref: TM029 Mermaids being our company icon, we at Marshbeck are obviously partial to those playful ladies of the sea. In ancient sailor’s lore mermaids were reputed to sing so beguilingly that they lured many a spellbound sailor into the deep. Although the mermaids natural element, this posed a problem to the average sailor since most of them didn’t master the art of swimming. Our charming mermaid mounts her dolphin steed rather than luring sailors

Salty Dog Rowing Sky Hook

Salty Dog Rowing Sky Hook
Ref: TM036 One of the least liked and heaviest jobs o f the Sailing Age was for the sailor to row out the ship’s anchor and place it in position. Sometimes several anchors were needed to make for a safe and secure berth. Our rowing sailor seems to carry a light load: at least he makes that impression. Hand made and hand painted in sheet metal. The anchor line is made of twisted metal wire

Helmsman Sky Hook

Helmsman Sky Hook
Ref: TM050 Art inspired by and demonstrating aspects of science were popular in Victorian times. People loved sculptures that did the seemingly impossible. Optical illusions, magnetic forces, the laws of gravity: they all seemed magical in an era when society was changing fast and the industrial revolution was unstoppable. Skyhooks, effortless counter-weighted art that could be set on a shelf or the rim of a table, and set in motion to everybody’s delight and amazement
