Antique Victorian Purple & Black Silk Mourning Parasol

£150.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is a real one off. Dating from the Victorian era, we believe that most of it is silk with a lace inner. A mourning parasol with purple (catholic) inner. It is set on a cane strut with what may be a yew handle. There are some small stretches to the purple silk on the inner and part of the lace needs tacking. Considering its age it's in remarkable condition. A thing of Gothic beauty! (Please ignore the decade in the attributes)
