Vintage Parasol with Lace Canopy
We are pleased to offer another wonderful vintage parasol or umbrella or walking stick. This one could be as old as the Victorian era.
The umbrella has a painted black wood handle with a 3/4" brass tip. The umbrella canopy is made of black satin or silk with a loose black lace overlay. The canopy is small in diameter and has a cord and tassel wrap to hold it close. If used as a walking stick, the "handle" is hand cut wood in an acanthus leaf and tassel design and slightly tapered. There is also a hand cut ball at the end of this piece with a flower-like design.
The overall length of the parasol is approximately 34-1/2". This wonderful umbrella is in very good condition. There is a 2" black painted metal cylinder starting 12-1/2" up from the brass tip which appears to be a repair splint to keep the shaft together in place of glue. Also the brass tip is a little bit loose but appears original to the piece.
