I found three of these hangers in a box of wooden hangers that were thrown into a group of boxes that I bought at an estate auction. I was going to just get rid of the entire box of hangers but, I decided to at least look through them. It turns out the wooden hangers were old Setwell trouser hangers and are worth a little bit it seems. These three odd looking hangers really stood out and I am having a hard time finding much information on them. The one thing I did find was an ad in the May 1947 Popular Mechanics magaine at this link: http://books.google.com/books?id=094DAAAAMBAJ&lpg=PA262&ots=rjlAgieel0&dq=frohock-stewart%20hanger&pg=PA262#v=onepage&q=frohock-stewart%20hanger&f=false

Stamped on the hanger is this information:

U.S. PATS.

I am really interested in finding out more about these unique hangers. Thanks.
