Nothing is more enjoyable for me, than to open a shipping container, knowing it’s contents to be an antique frame, in need of some TLC. It’s quite something, to think that what you are holding, was once held by someone at least 100 years ago, maybe more.
And, handles of antique umbrellas (or parasols), are always a treat for the eyes. These were accessories that were more than just functional … they were accessories to be displayed.
With my customer’s approval, I thought I would post pictures of this beautiful umbrella. The handle needs no words ….
