Rare Victorian Antique Oak Locking Umbrella Stand c Rare Lock and Key Mechanism
The only other one I found is located in the John M. Mossman Lock Museum at the General Society of Mechanics & Tradesman of the City of New York. These were used in local speakeasy's, saloons and events where large numbers of people were expected.It has a custom built, galvanized tin base to catch drippings with a vent to expel excess water. The lock is is a sliding mechanism which when locked releases a key which the patron keeps until they want to retrieve their umbrella. I have tried to show the above details in the photos. If you go to the museum website mentioned earlier you can see the other example found. This is complete and has all the locks and keys. The cabinet is quarter sewn oak and the measurements are 32 x 16 x 36.
