Rare VTG Silk Art Deco Umbrella withEmbossed Silver Screw on Handle Original Box
This is an amazing vintage black umbrella or parasol in its original box. Don't think it was ever used. Still debating whether to keep for myself. I do believe this is real silver as silver polish really brightened it up. It screws into the umbrella base and as you can see is rather long and appears embossed or the like.There is also a long fringed tassel attached to it and has an outer cover sleeve that fits tightly down the umbrella to keep it together and then has a little piece at end of sleeve that wraps and ties at the bottom (see next to last pix). As you can also see in the pix, this is pure silk! And to still have the box! I really have no idea about dating this. Box looks on older side; I listed as 50s but could be older. The umbrella is in very good condition as think NOS.
Since silk not sure if true umbrella or more of a parasol. The box is in good vintage condition; looks like someone stuck the top piece of the umbrella in too hard and there is a tiny hole in the bottom part of box at top. There is also one place that looks almost like someone's fingernail pressed too hard to top of box as there is an indentation. It still had part of the label on it but it got torn when opened so can't quite make it out.
If anyone knows anything let me know. It is simply an amazing piece. Couldn't find anything like it on Internet and couldn't find anything with original box whish usually adds quite a bit to prices.Nice collectible piece or could use. Length of umbrella without handle 24.25. Length of silver handle 12. This item is in the category "Clothing, Shoes & Accessories\Specialty\Vintage\Vintage Accessories\Umbrellas & Parasols".
