HI Dean,
You have a 3rd quarter 19th century, circa 1870's Victorian era, Renaissance Revival style grand scale hall tree.
Without a maker mark or stamp where this was made and by whom cannot be definitively stated, through the style can be attributed to makers, Mitchell & Rammelsberg from Cincinnati, Ohio.
Based on comparables of size, material, age and quality, this is a $12,000 - $20,000 piece at auction. A retail price, depending on the dealer, can up to $40,000, though as a private seller, it is more realistic to benchmark your asking price based on auction sale numbers.
Here is a link to a comparable that sold for $12,900:

Here is a link to a Mitchell & Rammelsberg attributed hall tree that sold for $18,900:
