Early 20th Century Parasols

A few lovely paintings illustrating early 20th century oriental parasols.

Isn't this a stunning image?

I LOVE this gigantic oriental parasol - can't find things like this anymore (at least not that I've seen!).

  1. That is a very saucy swimsuit in the first picture! And the paintings are fantastic - who are they all by?

    I have seen gigantic oriental parasols in a Japanese antiques shop, but they were all in rather poor condition. They might have been nearly this age.
