Offering an antique Victorian era ladies parasol / umbrella.
The brown silk on this parasol is pretty much all split and useless so what i am selling here is the umbrella frame and its works which are still very usable.
The entire parasol measures 34 1/2" in length. The handle and main wood bar are one piece of what I think is willow wood. This wood is nicely twisted and curved at the end to make an interesting handle. The tassel decoration is original to the piece.
There are two locking mechanisms along the bar to keep the shade open or closed and they both work well. The inner frets are made of metal and they are also all in good working condition sliding in and out, up and down with ease.
