Grand 19th Century Flemish Renaissance Hall Tree with Trunk combines exceptional convenience with all-in-one functionality to create the perfect entryway piece!  Hand-crafted and fully carved from old growth oak which has been professionally stripped by our expert in-house staff to retain patina yet reveal the natural beauty of the wood, it sports a shelf on top for caps, hangers galore, a mirror to freshen up, a place for your wet umbrellas and canes, and even a bench seat for pulling off stubborn boots, and finally a trunk to store them in!  The twelve carved panels feature stylized foliates and anthropomorphic facial images except for the two linenfold panels above the drip trays.  The drip trays, by the way, are removable for emptying water and cleaning if needed.  There's even a hanging rod across the top so that the hooks can adjust to the type of garment hung.  The generously sized mirror is framed with carved scrollwork on each corner.  Twisted rod above, curving around for the umbrellas and canes below, forged into hooks and also strap hinges for the bench seat, are all fashioned from wrought iron.  Seat opens to reveal a spacious trunk which is very unusual for a hall tree!
Circa 1880s
