The front of the canopy is also printed in black with GUCCI. The parasol can be collapsed and held together with a cotton loop and wooden button toggle system. The parasol features an internal label that is stamped 100% Cotone Made in Italy. This piece is entirely hand printed, crafted and finished. The handle and body are crafted in teak and the framework and workings are finished in black enamelled metal and brass.The handle is formed in the traditional r shape finished with a gold plated end cap embossed with the interlinking GG GUCCI monogram and enamelled racing stripe in red and green. Diameter of Canopy While Open: 105cm across. The condition of this piece is good with signs of use and wear significant with age. There are minor age spots on the canopy and pitting to the vernis on the handle of the parasol. The canopy is still taught while open with no holes, tears or repairs. The parasol is in full working order with no flaws to mention of. I regard my photographs as part of my description, my photos give the most accurate impression and description of the item so please do refer to these. I take multiple close-ups and in some cases scratches, stains or marks, can appear bigger and more intense than they really are; however I prefer my customers to be pleasantly surprised, than disappointed.
