Antique Silk Folding Parasol CIVIL War Early Victorian Era Carriage Umbrella
Beautiful antique late Civil War early Victorian era silk folding parasol. Comes with its original fancy matching 3 silk braid fringe that trims the parasol. Carved decorated tip matching top end of handle. Height of parasol 27" with 2" tip, Diameter 19.
Folds down to 17 including tip. Beautiful early patterned silk from late Civil War era. In 4Th photo you will see a thin cord hanging from a little metal fastener. I believe this is used to hold the parasol together. Parasol opens and closes nicely. When fully open you can see splits in the silk. I have tried to photo some of these.
When opening and closing the parasol the slits do not increase or get any bigger but they are definitely there. Wonderful hard to find early example of an antique folding carriage traveling parasol.
