Molly Weasley: "Tonks!"
Nymphadora Tonks: "I’m sorry! It’s that stupid umbrella stand, that’s the second time I’ve tripped over —"
Nymphadora Tonks apologising to Molly Weasley for having awoken Walburga Black's portrait[src]

This was an umbrella stand made from a troll's leg.[1]


It stood by the door at 12 Grimmauld Place, and Nymphadora Tonks was known to have tripped over it on more than one occasion, usually causing the Portrait of Walburga Black to begin screaming.[1]

When Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger visited 12 Grimmauld Place during the Horcrux hunt following the Luchino Caffe Duel, they find the troll-leg umbrella stand knocked over, possibly done in the Order's haste to evacuate the building after the Secret-Keeper, Albus Dumbledore's death, or when Severus Snape entered and searched the building.[2]

In 2019, the troll-leg umbrella stand was captured by the Calamity and began to appear around the world as a Foundable.[3]
