Home / For the Home / Decorative Accessories / King Skyhook (Item# 10062428 )
Meticulously hand-painted in an ermine trimmed red cape, royal scepter and crown, this handcrafted skyhook is made in the figure of a stately king standing suspended in mid-air atop an arch.
Each one-of-a-kind piece is fashioned from recycled metal and finished with a distressed antique patina.
Entertaining and collectible, the King Skyhook pays homage to the courtly characters seen in the Met’s productions of Donizetti’s three Tudor queen operas.

Anna Bolena premiered at Milan’s Teatro Carcano in 1830, and was Donizetti’s first great international success. David McVicar, who created the Met’s new production of Anna Bolena, says of the work: “Donizetti takes the bel canto form and explores every possible dramatic opportunity within it. The lynchpin of the story is Anna Bolena’s inability to provide Henry VIII with the male heir that he craves. And, of course, to be a wife of Henry VII is to risk as much as you gain.”
