Parasol from Paris

While away with my boys, a few weeks back I bought this from an 80yo lady whose aunt took a trip to France 30yrs ago and brought back this sweet antique French parasol from a Paris flea market.

The apricot tone is really very hard to photograph but its so very beautiful!

It actually has a doubled up ruffle which is very sweet...

the top being apricot and white and then other being apricot and lemon roses on the inside.

Amazing jeweled handle...

beautiful details...

Apricot ruffles...


I haven't been able to find out too much info on this piece as it seems jeweled parasol handles are pretty hard to come by...but it sure is nice to look at :)


  1. You are so lucky!!! I'm looking for a vintage umbrella right now, I hope I find one half as lovely as yours!

    That is really beautiful. Can you not just see a lovely, gorgeously-dressed lady out for a stroll, with that parasol? Of course, her outfit would have matched beautifully, her feet clad in the finest, softest leather. Perhaps a handsome man walking beside her.
    It is perfect on that ottoman, which I am still swooning over.

    1. Oh yes Sandra...I can see it too :) What a lovely setting it would have been.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave me a comment.
I love hearing each and everyone of you xo
