A Delicate Filigree Umbrella Holder or Wastebasket
This piece has 6 sections with outstanding decoration in soft metal. The details are painted in an asphaltum wash with gold highlights! I did use it as an umbrella stand but the bottom has open pierce work which allows the tips of the umbrellas to go through! I just placed the umbrellas very delicately inside. There are three small feet on the bottom of the basket!
