This vintage soft metal piece is an umbrella stand. It has the two loops at the top that hold the umbrellas upright. The base is a "bowl" that collects the water when it falls off the umbrella. The body of this piece is ornate. It has a "loop handle" at the top so it can be moved easily by a dollhouse family member. This piece has more orange than most gilt pieces. I have seen this in other ormolu pieces. This umbrella stand is 3-1/8" tall x 1-5/8" wide x 1-3/8" deep.
This stand was used. There are bends that can be seen in the pictures of the sides. There is a bit of paint wear on the back that can be seen in picture #4.
