1908 Antique umbrella parasol gold paint and porcelain hand painted handle. RARE
VERY RARE Antique vintage umbrella parasol. Elegantly hand painted Victorian Ladies(2) on a porcelain handle with gold paint(likely real gold paint) accents and brass gold colored cap hardware. All straight, no bends or kinks.Opens and closes with no issues. Clicks in open position locked like any umbrella should. FABRIC or SILK NEEDS REPLACEMENT IF DESIRED. HANDLE HAS A SMALL REPAIR(1cm chip photo).
Opposite end from the handle needs repair or replacement if desired. Patent 1908(seen in photos). Not much else known about this amazing antique! The fine paintings of ladies on porcelain with real gold paint accents is a tribute to a time past of craftsmanship and artistry.The gold painted accents show some ware from use over the decades but are in excellent condition. Finding information about this paresol has proven difficult, as I have only seen two handles.
Simular but way less mastery in their final product. This item with new fabric and a new top tip opposite the handle would make this stunning umbrella almost newminus the handle 1cm chip seen in the photo and the missing letter before. Co on one of the arms that holds the fabric...If you have any questions I would be glad to answer them. Item is final sale, more photos upon request within 72 hours.
