Huret Inspired Parasol

8" long (incl. finial)
Antique and Very Well Preserved

ON LAYAWAY
, With many new reproductions seen on today's market, it is a treat to find the actual antique item as it originally was, as is the case with this Huret type parasol.  The hood is in a royal blue and white, plaid silk, with long, frilly double fringe, a metal and wood shaft and carved bone covered handle and finial.

Underneath the hood is the metal frame with wooden spokes. There is no marking on the parasol, however in style and quality, it follows the design features of those marketed from the Huret factory when it was made in the mid 1800's. The condition and workings of this smart looking accessory are generally excellent, however three of the wooden spokes in the frame are fragile.  Modeling here is a Huret fashion doll.
