1901 Victorian Mourning Parasol
A truly beautiful item from the turn of the last century.
A black parasol with wooden stem and a glass and silver knob.
The body of the parasol has layers of black lace ruffles and lace trim all in remarkable condition.
The brolly mechanism even works perfectly.
The silver hallmark has dated this to 1901, London made
Victorian /Edwardian as Queen Victoria died in January 1901 and 3 days of national mourning were declared so it's reasonable to assume this parasol was purchased at the time and reflected the national mood. A nice piece of history.
Overall excellent condition with only a couple of small faults visible when held up to the light.
93cm long. £145 inc UK postage
