The Doten-Dunton Desk Company was founded around 1904 and had as their mission to produce “distinctive office equipment” for business owners who wanted something a little better than the average. Their customers were mainly banks, insurance companies and executive offices. In 1905 they introduced mahogany to their oak line and it became very popular until the 1930′s when walnut was the main wood of choice. This classy mahogany umbrella stand has the company label on a brass plaque on the base. It also features brass capped feet and a copper drip pan that fits the frame. The top surface is quartered to give you four separate holding areas for canes and umbrellas. The piece still features it’s original finish. It’s heavy and substantial furniture with a great Mission or Arts & Crafts design.
