EXCELLENT Antique/Vintage Doll/Child Silk Parasol/Umbrella, Carved Bone Handle
Please scroll down to see the photos. 20" long and 15 1/2" wide when open, this is an outstanding antique parasol for a large doll, or small child.
It's made of very pale blue silk with off-white silk ruffles; the lining is a darker blue silk. The handle and tip are made of carved bone. It comes in the original box, which is marked Little & Jamison, Greensburg, Ind.", and "27; maybe the original cost was 27 cents? Little & Jamison was a mercantile store in Greensburg. The parasol is in all-original condition, showing very little wear for such a delicate item.
There are a few splits in the silk above the highest ruffle, a couple very small light rust-ish stains (which I'm now having a hard time finding) and a small light water stain which is hard to see and does not detract. There are also a couple small splits in the bone handle; all these are shown in the photos. Since antique silk is fragile, I haven't opened it all the way; I use either a rubber band or a piece of tape to keep it in place; the photos show it with a piece of tape. It slides up and down well and clicks securely into place when closed.It's a fancy and rare antique parasol!
