19th Century County French Hall Tree ~ Bonnetiere is a very unusual combination of a bonnetiere and a hall tree that is perfect for welcoming guests and family members into the home!  Four elaborately cast, detailed hanging hooks appear on each side panel, with a serpentine guard and serpentine drip pan below on each side perfect for tossing one's umbrella.  The center piece, however, is quite unusual being a bonnetiere, ideal for hanging clothes inside with even more finely cast brass hooks, and a small shelf on top for hats & gloves.  The door is magnificently adorned with hand-carved shell, floral and foliate motifs with a generously sized rosette taking center stage, and a stunning bas relief at the top to captivate the visual sense.  At the bottom of the door, hung with brass hinges, appears a stylized shell with scrolls which leads the eye to the scrolled apron and legs which provide support for this wonderful and unusual instant family heirloom!
Circa 1880s
