    Over the weekend I was in southern Indiana with some friends looking at a 1940 Ford and a 67 Oldsmobile 442. At one of our stops this stick and ball umbrella stand was in a small antique store. I knew it was special when I first saw it. Just think 128 years old and still looks this awesome. Someone took great care of it all these years and now it’s home in my collection. I will take care of it until the next caretaker gets it and hopefully that will be several years away.

      officialfuel, Beautiful. :-)

      That patent on the brass hardware caught my eye, so I did a bit of looking around:


      The brass supports are stamped Feb. 16, 1892.

      This 1892 patent was issued to James W. Campbell of Germantown, NY and assigned to the Ferguson Brothers of New York City, a manufacturer of “novelty furniture”. Campbell was issued many patents for furniture designs.
