A cast-iron black painted umbrella stand about two and a half feet (62 cm) high and 18 inches (45 cm) wide, six inches (15 cm) deep. The cast iron is formed with symmetrical floral designs. The handles of two canes and one umbrella protrude from the top of the stand. Wallpaper adorns the wall behind it.
