English Shagreen Handled and Silver Banded Silk Damask Parasol by S. Fox & Co.

$1,350

About

This elegant Japonnaise styled Edwardian English parasol was made by the renowned London firm of S. Fox and Company and bears their signature and their brand name Paragon to one of the spines. It features a wonderful long shagreen covered handle that is joined to the umbrella shaft by a solid silver collar bearing the maker's mark of silversmith Walter Keith together with the London Assay Office hallmark together with the date stamp for 1911. The umbrella covering itself is the original black Rinzu Silk Damask with a cherry blossom pattern. There is a woven and intricately macramé knotted silk rope wrist strap along with a matching collar at the umbrella centre point above the ferrule. The condition of this parasol is amazing save for the original 100+ year old Damask covering which shows extensive but expected tearing and wear along the spines. The shagreen, silver, macramé wrist strap and Malacca cane (save for a tight hairline just above the brass ferrule) are all fine to excellent. This high-end piece is truly of museum quality.
