Mourning Parasol, 1860s [Metropolitan Museum of Art] Probably half-mourning considering the colour on the top, but a lovely example of another mourning accessory.

Parasol Date: 1880–90 Culture: American Medium: silk, wood, metal. Parasols were for show, carried as an accessory to complete a toilette. This example is fitted with a crook at top so it could be carried with the canopy down for a more elegant line than carrying it from the handle end. In addition, this shows off the tiers of feminine ruffles.
