Antique Hall Stands are free standing piece of antique furniture often seen in the late Victorian and Edwardian periods in oak, mahogany and walnut to the more unusual designs like the bentwood coat stand. They were quite unique pieces, tall with a glove compartment and central mirror. They came in different forms from the antique hat stand to the antique umbrella stand and used in many different settings from a hall of a house to an eating or drinking establishment. Cabinet makers would usually make these very sturdy and solid as they would have to take quite a lot of weight and often used Arts and Crafts influences for decoration with solid brass or copper hooks. They also quite often have a ‘drip tray’ in the base to catch any water from umbrellas, when placed on them, this would protect the floor and also the piece of furniture.
