Unbelievably gorgeous and rare French made umbrella from the 1950s. This is a usable umbrella, NOT a parasol. Very well made with two layers of (I think) nylon fabric that is very sturdy. Lots of spokes also give it strength. I use one of these and it's nothing like a new umbrella...it keeps its shape even in strong wind...will not break! Besides that, it's gorgeous, with a beautiful blue floral print on the inside, light blue on the outside. Handle is silver and embellished with a huge amethyst jewel on the handle. Anyone who collects these will know that this is the creme de la creme of vintage umbrellas! I'm listing another, very similar one as well, which I bought from the same woman. Measures 34" long. Mint unused condition.
