Presented for your consideration:
A Red Wing Umbrella Stand
It is said that these beautiful Red Wing umbrella stands were likely used within commercial properties such as hotels or in office buildings during the early 1900's. This thick walled stoneware stand measures 17.5" tall, and is 9.5" wide. Alas, it is not without an issue! Please examine carefully the photos showing damage on the bottom edge and bottom of the piece. There is a triangular shaped piece that may have had to have been reglued into place, and some long fine tight hairlines radiating out from this area. I know there are talented people out there who are capable of invisably repairing this type of thing, and it would be well worth having it done as this piece is not common. It is unmarked as is always the case with these. Circa 1905.
