This superb antique parasol is certain to delight your favorite big dolly! Seldom have we seen such a fine specimen in our search for antique doll accessories. The parasol is in EXCELLENT condition, with beautiful double scallop cut trim and that gorgeous bamboo handle which was polished to avoid splintering- pulled through with a peep hole from which hangs a pair of stunning matching plum tassels, and finished with an ivory colored base. Double layer coverage, with a cream interior. Just an INCREDIBLE display piece.
24" from end to end.
13.5" of silk covering.
Condition; Absolutely AMAZING for its age. This piece is in as close to mint in these parasols come... With that fanciful silk tassel, stunning bamboo a handle. One minor tack stitch reinforcing one of the spoke's connections to the lining, and the tiniest thinning of the lining. We did not push it all the way open- but it will display open without being clicked all the way (many do not have this feature!) Beyond excellent!
**We now ship EVERY SINGLE ONE of our antique costume pieces in archival, museum quality, acid free tissue paper. We store them in an acid free, climate controlled environment, because we want you to get a textile that has been frozen in time. As curators of these antiques, we want them to be as fresh for the next generation of students and enthusiasts as they were for us. This is factored into the price of our merchandise. We hope you can enjoy these rare finds for years to come, and we want to make sure that when they reach you, they are ready for careful love and display if you so chose. Happy shopping!**
