#1700   Parasol

c. 1900-1910 United States SOLD

Materials: Covering: cotton muslin with an outer border of embroidered blue and white daisies.  Ribs and tips: metal painted black.  Stick: shaped 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 light brown spotting.  No holes or tears anywhere.  

Measurements: Covering spread, 31";  Stick L, 42".

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.
