Info

Codition report: both umbrella stands have been used and therefore have defects and signs of wear consistent with their age.
The taller one (plain silver and blue) is in better condition, with small scratches, small dents and a small lack of color on the inner upper ring.
The smaller one (dotted aubergine) has more signs of wear: multiple surface scratches, small dents. The upper circle is a bit bend, not completely round.
