Black silk canopy, lining and fringe. Presented here is a gorgeous original Victorian era silk parasol.
This has a large 26 canopy on a metal frame with latch to open and close, all works well. The silk on the canopy is 15 wide not including the fringe, it is lavishly hand embroidered with multi color florals. The handle is wood, looks like bamboo, lacquered with brass fittings. The inside is lined with a sheer black silk.

The fringe is fabulous, it is 4 long, very thick, almost looks like chenille but it is a crinkled silk ribbon. Overall the parasol is 34 1/2" long from handle to tip, the open canopy is 26" across. Excellent antique condition, there are some splits in the lining, please see the photo, but really good for the age, most of these old linings are deteriorated, it is sturdy but has some damage as it is pulled tight when open. The canopy is excellent, no damage to the embroidery, the silk is very sturdy, no stains, there are a couple of splits at two folds but hardy noticeable.
