Nearly a century and a half ago, someone with a wicked sense of humor must have designed this antique. Why else would he fashion a fish into a hook, transforming the creature into the means by which it is caught? He did it on porpoise!

Okay, now that we're done amusing ourselves, we'll note that this one-of-a-kind hook is made of cast iron with some of its original black enamel intact. Originally used to hang a kerosene lantern, this hook could now hold a plant, swag light, or simply make waves as a whimsical curiosity.
