Polka Dot Parasol

Polka Dot Parasol
C.1870's. A very unusual and striking parasol.
The cover is made out of white cotton with red polka dots. There is some wear and age spotting to the cover. Still strong enough to be used today for period events. None of the metal ribs are broken, and the stick is in nice shape. The stick measures 29 1/2", and the cover measures 27" across. (Formerly from the collection of Leila Hidic)
