This French parasol/umbrella handle is made in sterling silver and is a perfect blend of Art Nouveau and Victorian styling. Its beautiful and graceful shape reminds us of a more refined period when every accent counted in an ensemble, even something as practical as an umbrella! I found this handle in Paris, and it is stamped with the maker's hallmark (an image which I can't quite decipher) and "800" which is French sterling silver. It features repousee work with a stylized urn with flowers and greenery flowing out of it on both sides of the handle. The original umbrella has been removed (a portion of the silvertone metal shaft and the runner remain), giving you the opportunity to re-purpose this wonderful handle on your own parasol, umbrella, cane, or walking stick. You might even be able to "refine" the tip of the existing wood or simply replace it (as the remainder of the original wood shaft does have a crack in it ~ seen in the last photo), and make yourself an incredibly unique wand!

This handle will truly add a special touch of elegance to whatever it is attached to. It measures approx. 2 1/2" long by 2" wide, and feels very comfortable in the hand. You can really feel the history in it! The diameter of the opening for the actual umbrella measures approx. 1/2", so you can match it up to your use accordingly.

This sterling silver umbrella handle captures the style and grace of the Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian period. A truly gorgeous piece ~ suitable for use by women or men!
