The most beautiful parasol ever? I think so. Rare silk velvet embroidered. All done in thorny roses. The backdrop was taupe silk, now tea stained throughout. The trim was all battenburg lace. The inside is taupe silk, more beige now. Gorgeous burled maple handle, all polished smooth and it has such a nice shiny patina still. The handle of this beauty is one of the most intricately carved I’ve seen. There is no doubt, for the time period, this was something really special. It almost has that Egyptian look so popular for the time…hand carved birds, one an owl I think. Curved art nouveau style handle all carved and engraved. Incredible! This is either late Victorian or early Edwardian. I feel like it may be early Edwardian because the handle is carved in a style that is very Edwardian.


Condition- as is, tears in the umbrella and lining. Tea stained exterior. I didn’t fully open it, because it could tear further. It has the metal notch to secure it open, but I didn’t want to attempt it. I think this could be restored though. A lot of the fabric is still there and it slides open and close very smoothly, just the fabric is delicate.

Measures 34” long closed with handle. Full size open parasol, not children’s.
