An Ormolu Umbrella Stand
There are many shapes one finds for umbrella stands. This one is similar to a barrel but it tapers to the bottom. Under the rim are small garlands circulating the entire opening. The remainder of the stand is done in long small strips of ormolu leaves attached at each end. The top and bottom are very sturdy and will hold umbrellas nicely.
Measurements: 1-3/4”h. x 1-3/8” (diameter at the top).
