Ormolu Art Nouveau Umbrella Stand
As the photos show, one can see the umbrella stand straight on, from above and the third photo shows the back and the last photo shows it lying down. The ormolu is strong and brilliant. The two circular holders at the top hold the umbrellas in place on top. The elaborate base with its angular supports on the sides certainly gives us the feeling of the Art Nouveau period. The back support that attaches the base to the circular holders is the stem of the lily and the leaves rest on the circular openings too. A nice accent to your hallway, perhaps at the bottom of the stairs to your entrance!
