This antique, Tiffany Art Nouveau bronze base would have originally held a glass trumpet shaped vase. This base has a fitter above a short baluster standard molded in an artichoke pattern and raised on a spreading, round base. With engraved owner's monogram: HDS (?). It could be used as a candlestick.
