The Rain Bowl by Sebastian Bergne is is not completely clear about its function. It looks like it may be an old agricultural tool.

Made of die-cast aluminum, the "bowl" is a hefty holder for umbrellas. It cantelivers wet umbrellas by your door and collects rainwater that drips off of them. We like the mysterious and very simple design...

And it is on sale right now at Design Within Reach for $68, marked down from $180. We just got the funny image of using this as a combination umbrella stand and doggie water bowl. It would take a rainy day and lots of umbrellas, but this could double as a watering bowl for Spot.
