Antique French Walnut Wood Hall Rack and Umbrella Stand, circa 1880


This versatile and unusual antique French hall tree and umbrella stand is in the Louis XV rocaille style. At the top centre of the crown area is a reticulated scalloped shell with c-scrolls and a centre acanthus leaf at the bottom. There are s-scroll shaped acanthus leaf moldings at the shoulders on either side extending three-quarters of the way down the sides. Another s-scroll molding extends down to the shell platform where the umbrellas would be placed. The opening for the umbrellas is a beautifully hand-carved stylized shell. This versatile antique French hall rack, umbrella stand will be a wonderful addition to any entrance. It could also be easily converted into a powder bath framework for a sink by removing the back or removing the hooks and adding a mirror.
