Antique 1800s Black Silk Carved Wood Handle Victorian Mourning Parasol Umbrella
Antique 1800s Black Silk Carved Wood Handle Victorian Mourning Parasol Umbrella. TIMES ARE TOUGH & WE DON'T WANT YOU TO MISS OUT! CONDITION: This wonderful item is overall in VERY GOOD used condition! Handle has some light wear on very end showing a wood color underneath the black & a couple little marks along rest of handle. Parasol is tight from age, but still locks in place when opened. Did not see any holes in the silk. I did open this & hold it above me in front of a light. I did see a couple pin point spots that are possibly just worn, as when I studied one closer, it didn't appear as if there was a little hole. I think the fabric is just wearing in tiny little spots.
Acquired from a local estate with many amazing antique items! A genuine antique Victorian era black silk parasol. Was told this dates to the 1800's.The handle is superbly carved. Can't tell what exactly the handle is made of, but would guess some type of wood. Nice black silk top with extra little details, more ornate than others I found! Altogether a very lovely example of an elegant lady's accessory. I HAVE MORE GREAT ITEMS FROM THIS SAME HOUSEHOLD! ITEMS WILL BE LISTED OVER THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS SO CHECK BACK FOR MORE AMAZING ITEMS! MEASUREMENTS: Closed this is 37 long. WEIGHT: 3/4 a pound unpacked!
