Folding Parasol

Folding Parasol
C.1855. A folding parasol with a maroon silk satin cover.
Folding parasols were popular in the mid 19th century as they were easy to carry and store when not in use. The stick is made out of beautiful glossy brown wood and the ferrule is made out of ivory. The original tassle on the stick remains, and black silk fringe hangs dwon from around the ferrule and cover edge. The ribs are cane and metal.
