This sale is for a Victorian Parasol that was purchased about 20 years ago from an estate. I am not really familiar with this type of thing so I'll describe it the best I can. It is black silk and the handle is gold and mother of pearl. The gold shows wear in a number of areas so it is either gold fill or rolled gold or gold plate. The mother of pearl is really nice with the exception of one spot right at the top which had a small piece replaced. The umbrella opens and is taut with no rips. There was one rib that whoever owned it sewed tight the end, so it must have been loose. It has a monogram Mrs. F. Kennedy Olwein IA on the top of the handle. I was unable to make the attribution to the Kennedy family on my own but I did send a picture off to Sotheby's 20 years ago and they at that time told me the value would be around 3,000 if I could get provenance that shoed it as being from the Kennedy family. They did think there had to be some sort of connection as this was not something the average lady could afford.
