Antique Victorian Black Silk Parasol Umbrella w/Mother of Pearl & Gold-Tone Handle. Antique Victorian Black Silk Parasol Umbrella.

Has a Mother of Pearl & Gold-Tone Handle and measures 33.5 overall in length. There is a gap between the MOP pieces, as the handle itself is loose on the parasol shaft and can actually be pulled off if one pulls hard enough.. So it needs to be reglued?

Or reattached somehow to keep it tight on the shaft. The Knob of the Handle has a beautiful Cipher Monogram - which I believe is MLB hey, my grandkids cant even read standard cursive writing, so I shouldnt feel too bad! When open, the parasol measures approx.
It has a wrap-around strap with a unique button closure to hold the umbrella supports tightly to the shaft, and has a wrist-loop hold near the handle. The silk exterior is a little dusty, as you can see from my pics, as it has been sitting in my hall tree for many, many years. There are several tiny holes around the silk panels when you hold it up to the light, but no major tears or other defects so the overall integrity is good for its age! Best of Luck to All and keep checking back for more fine antiques, jewelry, ephemera, and much more!
