Welcome to the Accessories Department of Poppies Cottage, where you will find all manner of beautiful fancies to decorate your ensemble!
Please note that I occasionally obtain parasols with antique clothing, but it is not my specialism. Forgive the lack of terminology!
This is a small antique Victorian parasol of black watered 'moire' silk, with a fine silk lining.
The top of parasol appears to be some kind of bone, carved, with a fringe all around and a plaited tassel. This fringing needs a very good combing!
The whole of the silk is in excellent antique condition, with two tiny holes to the lining. Obviously, it needs to be opened with care as this silk for parasols is usually fragile.
The mechanism for opening the parasol is working well.
One corner of silk needs to be re-attached to a spoke.
The whole of the edge of the silk canopy is deeply fringed, this fringing being quite smooth and all in place, but at least two edges need to be sewn back onto the silk, at the braided top. [see pics]
Now we come to the stick. I think it is carved bamboo, very attractive and with a deep shine.
Foldable, with a brass-like central moving cover to the mechanism, it is here where we have the main problem.
I think the photo's clearly show the damage - a sliver of the bamboo has come away from the upper join. I have it and would think it could be glued back on.
The lower part of the stick is whole, with the brass metal moveable part in place. This needs to be re-attached.
I hope you can understand - please view the photos carefully!
