This handsome solid wood and marble hall tree is in excellent original condition and has remained in one single family for more than 4 generations! We are downsizing and will not be able to take the piece with us in the move. With its intricate, decorative details refecting the fashionable Eastlake style, the wood is most likely walnut, but possibly mahogany. The piece was manufactured in approx.
1875, in either Kentucky or Ohio. The construction of the single drawer was quite innovative for the time. It was made using the newly patented Knapp joint, also known as pin and cove or half moon. Developed during the late Victoria Era in post-Civil War United States, this type of joint was a significant advancement in furniture construction. The raised back of the hall tree features a balustrade pediment and scroll frieze above a rectangular beveled mirror.The mirror is flanked by six hat and coat hooks. The lower part of the piece showcases a gorgeous veined marble top above the single drawer. On either side of the drawer are bowed rests for walking sticks and umbrellas and below, a shaped plinth base with metal liners. The Eastlake style of 19th century hall trees continues to be much admired by collectors. This quality piece would make a beautiful addition to any home.
