This Victorian linen parasol is in remarkable condition! The carved wooden handle has a wonderful steamed and bentwood handle. The linen has a lovely embroidered floral pattern along the edge and is decorated with an original blue ribbon. The parasol opens and closes smoothly and has a working catch to secure it when fully opened. The linen fabric is in excellent condition. Due to the age of the parasol, we discourage opening and closing it repeatedly as it may weaken the fabric threads over time.
