The handsome quality of this piece emphasizes its modern appearance and its terrific function remains as useful today as when it was first made for a private home. The stand has space for a twelve individual umbrellas and canes indicating the home was quite large and occupied by a prosperous family. The stand was designed to be seen from all directions and rewards close inspection as the intriguing pattern of the finials at each of the four corners as well as the medallions set midway between the two legs at either end.
