Online Auction Description

A parasol of tissue-thin light blue silk decorated with a bouquet of delicate pale blue and white flowers, covers the traditional Japanese bamboo rib construction.


Beautiful condition; fresh color in spite of its age, pre-World War II.


It take only a glance at the number of ribs to distinguish between a traditional Japanese parasol and a Western umbrella. It's the difference between 30 and 40 ribs made of slender bamboo and 8 sturdy ribs made of metal.


Traditionally, a single bamboo cane was used, split with great care into pieces of equal size for use as ribs. These are attached to the cover in the order in which they were split. That is why the parasol closes so neatly. The slightest error in construction can prevent it from opening.


When the parasol is open, a pattern of threads holds the ribs in the necessary geometrical spacing so they can slide up and down the center shaft. On the inside, the result looks rather like an elegant spider web.


(Measurements are approximate) ribs: 15 inches

Bamboo shaft: 29 inches

Over-all length, including top knot: 32 inches

This lovely parasol is in perfect condition now but old silk is inherently fragile. Be assured that the parasol will be packed for shipping with great care, however, it has never experienced extremes of temperature, or a lot of movement and handling.


Please take these factors into consideration when purchasing because it is being offered without any guarantee of future condition and there is NO RETURN.
