#1697    Parasol

c. 1900-1910 United States SOLD

Covering: white linen with hemstitched edge.  Ribs: silver colored metal with ivory, bone or vegetable plastic tips.  Stick: exotic 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 very faint stains.  No holes or tears anywhere.  Wood stick perfect.

Measurements: Covering spread, 32 1/2";  Stick L, 36 1/2"

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