Seller: fm9989 (142) 100%, Location: Mars, Pennsylvania, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 302126077932 There are no cracks chips or breaks, the metal is magnetic so they are not brass or pot metal. They are either steel or cast iron and plated brass. I have not cleaned the hangers so you can leave them with this patina or clean and polish to your desire. The holders are pretty large in size 9 1/4 wide and 6 1/2 high, the angle's are adjustable, and the adjustment screws are in fine working condition. Each of the holders weighs about 1 1/2 lbs. By loosening the rear thumb screw I can ship them in a medium flat rate Priority Box saving postage for many locations.
