French Victorian Faux Bamboo Hall Stand


A Superb French Faux Bamboo Hall Stand, made from fruit wood in the style of bamboo, complete with hand turned coat hooks, umbrella drip tray and original mirror, this is a superb example of the Victorian craftsmanship. C1880 

A 19th century innovation, the earliest hall stands usually consisted of a straight or shaped upright, sometimes with a drawer and with rounded wooden pegs or hooks on which to hang coats and hats. Some versions also contained umbrella stands in the central section or to each side.

Towards the end of the nineteenth century, there was a revival of the taste for bamboo furniture featuring pseudo oriental styles. Bamboo furniture had been popular in Regency days, but the difference was that, while in Regency days the ‘bamboo’ legs and other members were generally simulated, that is, the wood was turned and notched, and then painted to look like bamboo, the later pieces were actually made of bamboo.
