This wonderful handle came from a very fine Victorian parasol. I would date this to the late 19th century, and feel it is Continental in origin.

The handle is made of a silver metal, probably plate, over copper. It has a fantastic raised leaf design, done by applying individual leaves onto the handle and then outlining each with a rope circle. The long shaft is attached to the top knob, which has even grander leaves with swirling ropes surrounding them.

The fantastic culmination of this design is the oval porcelain plaque on the top of the knob. It has a hand painted scene of a female ballerina bending over with a male Prince standing above her. The background shows a castle and forest. The colors are lovely. Looks like a scene out of "Swan Lake".

The handle measures 10 1/4" in length and the porcelain plaque measures 1 1/2" by 1 1/8". It is in lovely condition. It would make a great desk accessory with an attached magnifying glass or just look great on its own on a table or dresser.

Please Note: Advanced approval is required on any international shipments before placing of orders.

Thanks for stopping by.
