Noticed this thing in episode 5.
When standing in the entrance way inside the house and looking at the front door.
To the left of the front door, a little ways inside, is a black iron thing about 4 to 5 foot tall and about 4 foot in diameter. Multiple flat sides. Maybe hexagon.
What is that thing?
The bottom has sides with perforated walls. Then curving iron posts upward, meeting at the top.
It does not appear to be good for hanging coats on. Maybe you might put wet dirty footwear in the bottom. But it seems overkill for nasty footwear.
