Item:254007405864This is a very lovely folding carriage parasol, it is a 19th century French design The handle and finials are Chinese Canton Export work carved in bone, made for the European market. The handle is elegant and original with a sweet little dog worked into the end and two running dogs in bas relief on either side of the length. Flowers and foliage, scrolls and spheres are also carved in bas relief around the handle. It would be museum quality if only the silk canopy and lining were not split on some of the seams. The mechanism works but the silk is fragile and it is better to fix it open with cello tape so as not to force the silk. A treasure of an early 19th century parasol. Wow everyone at the next period reenactment! Measurements are 20 inches in diameter when open and 25 inches long, 14 inches when folded.The handle is approximately 1/2 of an inch to 5/8 of an inch in diameter. Please study the photos.
