Antique Victorian Gold Filled Mop Floral Handle Mourning Umbrella Parasol:
Antique Victorian Gold Filled MOP Floral Handle Mourning Umbrella Parasol Let me first start by telling a little of the history of where thisbeautiful Victorian umbrella came from I had the intense and unique experience of attending the estate sale of longtime well-known and respected collector Mary Ann Goodwin of Germantown, Tennessee It was a most memorable experience for me The extent and expanse of her renowned doll collection and fine antiques is beyond description I have included a number of collage photographs toward the bottom of this listing of just a small part of her vast collection (NONE OF THESE DOLLS/UMBRELLAS OR ITEMS IN"SAMPLE" PHOTOS ARE INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING) These picturesdo not begin to represent what was most evidently Mrs. Goodwin's life's passion Mrs. Goodwin hada custom-built 2-story Victorian style (full-sized) house constructed on her acreage devoted entirely to her family of thousands of dolls that resided within that house Not only dolls, but the most amazing collection of doll furnishings, accessories, clothing and even doll jewelry and unique antiques It wastruly a stroll througha museum built from love! It saddened me greatly to see this beloved family of dolls and their finery leaving their home, and being scattered four corners to the wind Taken out of their prissy antique iron beds, prams, wicker bassinets and cribs, removed from their Victorian velvet settees, and taken away from their tea party social in the front parlor I only purchased a small number of these dolls, and a number of other antique items that caught my fancy and will be listing some of them within the next few weeks Again, please realize this particular listing is for only the one individual antique umbrella described in title/bold print description below The additional photographs are solely for documenting this wonderful lady's years of collecting knowing other collectors will find this of interest and will appreciate the little corner of the world she so beautifully created for her dolls Grand antique Victorian era mourning umbrella/parasol Immensely ornate gold filled floral handle in three parts with wavy mother of pearl between Black cotton fabric (still with full integrity) Open umbrella measures 40" across, and from tip to end of handle measures 37 1/2" in length The handle alone measures 8 3/4" in length Fabulous piece Engraved "Minnie Tanner, December 25, 1905" The tip is worn, but no other issues to make note of Excellent condition for age and consideration of materials and use Thanks for looking! ↓↓↓ More Supersize Pictures Below ↓↓↓
