it is from a parasol, from the late 1800's. it is made from sterling silver and inlaid mother of pearl. it is in very good condition.
i believe it to be American made
it is all there, a few small dings on the base(to be expected i think).
i've seen these made into magnifying glasses or even letter openers and they are gorgeous, and so unique.
a beautiful and elegant relic of a time gone by
8 1/2" long and 1 5/8" diameter at it's biggest point
