Yes... an umbrella, not a parasol for those of you curious about the distinction! This is a charming example of the form, and perfectly sized for standard height French fashion dolls. The frame is brass and turned bone (note the striations in the material) with a blue striped silk cover. The cover has been replaced with antique silk most authentically. Of course, the frame should not be opened fully to prevent any damage to the antique silk. It presents very nicely. There are tiny turned tips to each rib, though one is broken and one is missing. The cover is firmly attached even to these ribs, and the frame works perfectly. The finial is original and in good shape, and the end of the handle has a small chip at the end.

The parasol measures 7 1/2" (19 cm) long and 7" in diameter (18 cm).
