19th Century Flemish Renaissance Revival Hall Tree was designed to be the first thing to greet a homeowner immediately upon arrival.  Providing a place to deposit gloves, keys and the like, hang the hat and coat, and even park a dripping umbrella, it also afforded a mirror to make one more presentable if so needed.  This example features an interesting openness provided by arched open panels above, rectangular open panels midway, and an entire bottom section open to the wall behind the piece, all providing an airy effect.  A console style surface with drawer appears at the center, midway up, flanked by rails that are beautifully carved and which serve as umbrella or cane stands.  Drip pans in the lowest shelf contain errant water.  The entire framework features carved detailing, with the two upper panels the most elaborate.  The original beveled mirror adds a nice touch.  Hand-crafted entirely from solid oak to last for generation after generation.
Circa 1880s
