Red Lace Over Black Folding Parasol Umbrella late 1800s early 1900s

Parasols were considered essential during the 1800s to protect women from the sun's rays on bright sunny days. While parasols date back 5000 years, their popularity peaked in Victorian society when fair skin was fashionable. Their use faded by the Roaring Twenties. This impressive parasol is made of red lace over black and is edged in red fringe. It measures 24 inches long and 16 inches across when it is fully opened. It has a wood crook handle and a mechanism that allows the parasol to be folded. There is a fringed matching tassel that can be used to hold the parasol while it is closed. The workmanship is absolutely wonderful. It is amazing that this item has survived in such incredible condition. This is a real find!
