Western's Horizon Club Solid Wood Hanger Set
From their headquarters in Los Angeles, and with key hubs there and at Salt Lake City, Western Airlines was a force to be reckoned with in the western half of North America from 1926 until their acquisition by Delta Air Lines in 1987.
For many years, Western maintained a network of members-only private airport lounges under the Horizon Club brand, with 14 clubs in place during 1986, Western's last full year in business.
The Horizon Clubs are recalled through this new product, an artistic interpretation of the lounge branding, laser-engraved on both sides of a solid wood coat hanger with metal hanging hook.
Each hanger measures approximately 17.5 inches across, and 6 inches from the base of the hook to the bottom of the hanger bar, with a thickness at the top of the hanger of approximately .45 inches.
The laser engraving results in a beautiful caramel-colored image that contrasts clearly against the light wood of the hanger. A low-gloss polyurethane coating is applied to the wood surfaces after the engraving process is complete, to both seal the design and enhance the durability of the wood. These hangers are sold as sets of either two hangers or four hangers.
Bring some of that vintage Western Airlines style into your life, or gift them to a former Western employee or passenger - while the Horizon Clubs may not have had engraved hangers as luxe as these, they're a great way to recall this famous airline!
