Antique Umbrella Silver Hallmarked Mounted Bird Handle Parasol 1903 Edwardian
This is a superb example of an antique umbrella or parasol with a silver mounted handle in the shape of a bird - very Mary Poppins! Assayed in London in 1903 the makers mark is D&Co for Dibdin & Co Ltd. The eyes of the bird are glass. The handle is a type of rattan cane known as Malacca. The fabric is hand sewn and olive green in colour. The umbrella is in unusually good condition. The chrome plating is worn and the stay has lost elasticity.
