Our business is twofold. Buck's end is custom furniture/antique restoration. Mine is interior design.

Andy, you call them drapery hooks. Can you expand on your answer? The "drapery" hooks I'm familiar with look a bit different.

You got what they are, pacanis, but what are they used for? That's the second part of the mystery.

What. You want me to copy and paste hte wiki definition?

I don't know.... something about stretching wool fabric over a frame called a tenter, then using these angle shaped nails to hold it in place so the fabric didn't shrink when it dried.

Is there something else?

Never heard of such a use for the hooks, pacanis, and I've been using them for over 25 years. I've never seen them used for stretching damp/wet woolen fabric over anything. They have a specific use in decorating.

I knew it had something to do with fabric but Pacanis beat me to it.

I was thinking of the hooks that you use to hang drapes. I think Pacanis has a better answer.

My mom used to have a big wood fraome with pins all around the perimeter and she would put her curtains (sheers) on it so they dried in a uniform shape. Looks nothing like the hooks you show though.
