Mystery Item: Cast Iron Foot

No new sales to report, but that’s okay, yesterday I did my shift at the thrift shop and had my little compensation for that.

I’ve been wanting to show this for a while:

Brought in by my co-picker, and I couldn’t have dragged it home anyway! It weighs a ton, measures 43 cm / 17 in across and the center hole 5 cm / 2 in. And it has two sort of handles to pull it around. The aluminium strips are put on by someone and can be removed.

I know it's probably early 20th century. Anybody have a clue what it is? Table stand? Garden umbrella stand? My imagination stops right there.
