19th Century French Walnut Neoclassical Hall Tree was beautifully crafted by master artisans, and built to last for centuries!  Utilizing sumptuous indigenous walnut, the large frame was constructed in a manner inspired by ancient Greece and Rome, with style features that the French call Henri II.  The crown consists of a shell with cascading foliage leading the eye down to a gallery rail accented with turned finials on each corner.  This rests atop a bold crown molding which in turn presides over the upper tier.  Four single and two double brass hangers adorn the upper tier, with the generously sized original beveled mirror at the center flanked by turned, carved and fluted half columns.  The upper tier overlooks the drawer projection which is topped with luxuriously veined marble.  Connected to the drawer projection are two brass rails to contain umbrellas and canes, with the corresponding drip pan below.  The tailored drawer projection is fitted with a brass bale pull, adorned with tailored molding, and is supported in front by tapered and fluted columns that match the ones that flank the mirror.  What a perfect way to welcome family and friends!
