This is a MADE TO ORDER item. Most of my MADE TO ORDER items can be made up in a day or two and ready to ship. At times I have many orders and it may be longer before they ship. If you have a rush order, contact me and I will tell you whether I will be able to meet your deadline. I do offer International shipping. Contact me if you require shipping outside the US and I will give you the shipping cost to your country.
This handmade Victorian style parasol is in a line of fabric called burnout organza. The fabric is sheer and the flowers show through on the underside as well. It is finished with an organza ruffle of the same fabric at the hem and tip. This parasol has a painted turned wood handle, rib tips and ferrule tip. It is the perfect small size for a Victorian era parasol as it is about 23" in diameter when open and 30" long. It is finished with a tassel and parasol charm.
This parasol frame is very sturdy as it has a metal shaft. Many parasols offered are made on inexpensive wood shafts that are easily broken and have an unreliable opening mechanism. This metal handle also locks both open and closed for easy use and carrying.
Keep in mind that this is a parasol and not a rain umbrella. It may be used as a sun shade and to add a lovely accent to your ensemble, but don't get it wet. If it gets wet it will probably be damaged, and I cannot attest to the colorfastness of any of the products used in it's creation.
This parasol will be a stunning accessory for a Victorian, Civil War, Old West or Southern Belle costume or beautiful as part of your wedding attire. If you are a parasol collector, this will be a lovely addition to your collection.
