Entry-Hall Storage

Hall trees, like this one carved from oak, were extremely popular in the late 19th century. The beautiful full-length mirrors weren't just eye-catching, they were also practical, serving as a spot where one could remove galoshes, hang up an overcoat, and primp before leaving the house. Think of it as the precursor to today's mudroom. The mirrors also served to make rooms and hallways appear larger.
