Lovely Antique Chinese Carved Parasol with Lace Shade for saleCurrent customer rating: (3) based on 131 votes
Relisted due to winning bidder being from country do not ship to.
A very good quality antique Chinese carved parasol handle complete with net lace covered shade. The star of the show is the handle which consists of well carved dragons head tapering to an ornately carved stick section depicting dragons, foliage, birds and butterflies which joins to the shade section and is held in place by metal collar. The lining of the shade is intact and robust, however the net lace covering is starting to tear in places. feel this could be quite easily replaced with something similar to make this wonderful fashion statement once again.
The parasol measures 90cm long and when open, it measures 80cm in diameter. The handle section can be separated from the shade section allowing for ease of shipping. The shade lining is double layered, is off white in colour and looks to be fine cotton with sheen to it. The whole parasol looks to be handstitched. The handle section is made of domestic cattle bone.
Please look at all the photos as they form an important part of the description. Payment is politely requested within days of auction end. non paying bidder case is opened after that time unless contact is made with me. Thank you.
