#1695   Parasol

c. 1900-1910 United States SOLD

Materials: Covering: white cotton, hemstitched and edged with eyelet.  Ribs: silver colored metal painted white with ivory, bone or vegetable plastic tips.  Stick: painted wood.

Provenance: Parasol is one of a group I purchased from a 50 year collection of antique clothing and accessories.  This group of parasols is old, unused store stock.  Some of the parasols had stickers on them with the model names.

Condition: Excellent with some faint stains.  No holes or tears anywhere.  The paint on the wood stick is chipped, especially on the tip.

Measurements: Covering spread, 33";  Stick L, 37".

Comments: A quick laundering (I've done parasols in a tub) and then placed in strong sunlight to dry and some paint touch up, would put this parasol in like new condition.
