Vintage ca. 1940 Pagoda-Style Parasol with Springtime Greens and Yellows

For centuries, sensible ladies the world over have shielded themselves from the sun's rays with the convenient usage of a parasol.

From the Latin "to block the sun", in addition to being a highly functional object, the parasol became a fashion statement all its own.

Their handles and shades were made with all manner of materials and every decade boasts a unique style.

So whether you call it a parasol, brolly, umbrella, or even a bumbershoot, this vintage beauty is a sure to be a favorite!

Parasols in the elegant "pagoda"-style like this one were all the rage in the 1930s and 40s.

As you can see, the shade boasts a gorgeous springtime motif of stylized flowers in vibrant shades of green and yellow.

Best of all, the shade is in fantastic condition, exhibiting almost no stains or tears! A matching ribbon with green snaps keeps the pleats in place when the parasol is closed.

The stretchers, ribs, finial, runner and springs are all a demure silver-color, not detracting at all from the beauty of the shade of the Lucite handle.

Beautiful clear Lucite with a rich forest green interior make up the lower part of the handle, while a lovely piece of turned tobacco-colored wood makes up the upper part.

There is a pretty yellow-green cord tied around the handle finishing in a sweet tassel on one side and a loop for carrying on the other.

Although the Lucite and silver-colored show some wear and darkening, we are happy to say that overall this gorgeous parasol remains in great vintage condition.
