This is a lovely antique silk and lace parasol with a carved ivory handle and finial depicting entwining grapes. I think the handle was most probably carved in Dieppe as the parasol was retailed by Cazal, Paris. The silver coloured collars are both stamped 27 Boulevardes Italiens Cazal, Paris within a shield shaped cartouche. The handle folds down with the collar being used to hold it up when open. The silk and lace to the shade are both splitting but the handle is in excellent undamaged condition and when the parasol is down the splitting is not noticeable. A lovely little piece which would look wonderful in a display with dolls. The parasol measures 64cm in length and the shade has an approximate diameter of 54cm although I haven't extended this so that the catch engages as it is causing the silk to tighten too much and split further. The handle measures 27cm long from just under the collar holding the two sections together. I do not ship to China or Hong Kong.
