A French enameled umbrella stand with dog motif from the early 20th century. This French umbrella stand features an exquisite backplate, adorned with a dog sitting at the foot of an oak tree. Depicted in profile, the dog is sitting quietly, with its tail neatly tucked and its head turned, looking at a scene invisible to us. The oak tree, symbol of strength and wisdom, supports the double section dedicated to receiving the umbrellas. Raised on a nicely curved bottom tray, this French enameled umbrella stand circa 1900 will be a stylish accent in any mudroom or foyer.
