Description

Beautiful vintage bracelet charm designed as a traditional oil paper umbrella.

Oil paper umbrellas came originally from China, but spread throughout the orient during the Tang Dynasty (690-705 AD). These paper parasols play an important role in both Japanese and Chinese wedding ceremonies, and two paper umbrellas are a traditional part of the Hakka dowry offering as a blessing to the couple to have many children.

Unlike some of my other charms, this one is not a family piece so the date is estimated to be the 1960s, but I can't be certain. It is certainly of similar quality to the older, more detailed bracelet charms from that time period.

The piece is 3 dimensional, and the fabric is textured to represent designs painted on the oil paper umbrellas, or embroidered on the earlier silk versions. There is a slight amount of patina remaining on this charming parasol to highlight the texture and detail. If you prefer to polish more thoroughly, it will certainly shine for you. It is roughly 1.25 inches tall and weighs 4 grams in sterling silver.

**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**

Please take your time with the photos I have provided and consider them part of the description. This is the actual item you will receive, as-is, exactly as you see here. Please let me know if you have any questions and feel free to check out the many treasures available in my shop!
