Cast Iron Hallstand F350
Cast Iron Hallstand F350
Original, quality 19th century, stunning cast iron hallstand with seven cast iron hat or coat pegs, a central vertical mirror to the back, a shaped marble slab over a small pullout drawer with two umbrella sections left and right and a central column below, between the two corner shaped lift out cast iron drip trays. The tall back has four oval cameos in relief each with a farmer in different seasons, 1. Tithing the soil. 2. Sowing the seed. 3. Harvesting the crop. 4. Flailing the ears of wheat. The fretted panels between are detailed in relief with holly leaves and berries to the right and ivy leaves to the left. The drawer to the centre has the original wooden tray with a cast iron drawer front, again detailed in ivy leaves and the umbrella rails to each side and the main plinth to the floor are decorated with ivy leaves and berries in a "Greek Key Pattern" style. More and more can be described in great detail but needless to say, this hallstand is one of the best I have seen. All has been cleaned and lacquer finished, some good repairs have been made, the original mirror has a few blemishes but could be changed on request and one knob to the corner drip trays was missing and has a replacement made to suit copied from the other original. The reverse has a registration lozenge mark in relief for the year 1870 and all is complete and in good and working order. A serious piece of kit for it needs to be transported in sections, which will bolt together.

81.25" tall.

40" widest at floor.

18" front to back at the centre on the floor.
