From the late Victorian or early Edwardian era, a parasol for a pram carriage or baby buggy.  This gorgeous, late 1890's or 1900's, parasol is made of a moire silk fabric, in a golden tan color (first photo is more the true color), edged in the same shade of lace at the edge. 

The working parasol is lined with a muslin fabric of a lighter tan.  The lining is pinked at the edge in a scallop design.  Sticks are a black metal.  Short wooden dowel slides into a metal sleeve to close and open the parasol.   

Parasol shape is a deep dome which is 29" diameter, stick to stick.  The lovely machine lace forms a drop around the edge which is 7" wide.  Inside depth of the metal sleeve & wooden dowel is 4-1/2" long. Mechanism for closing and opening parasol works well.

Condition of the parasol is very good.  I noticed a couple of small frays to the fabric and a few oxidation spots but minor.  Although I didn't notice, you may find a few tiny holes in the lace.  

My only question - I don't know how this parasol mounted on a carriage.  There is no bracketry or any clue and yet the parasol, itself, is complete.  Perhaps the metal tip on the outside of parasol fit into another part?
