VEVA’S ELEPHANT UMBRELLA BASKET

Veva de Lima elephant

A gruesome accessory, this real elephant foot works as an umbrella basket. The wrought iron motif to hold the umbrellas in place is also the profile of the beast. When you have this by your doorside and use it everyday… it’s probably as un-PC as it gets.
