Early 20th Century Parasols

I've been doing a little research about Oriental Parasols in the Early 20th Century for one of the characters in my Dance Light piece. Here are a few of the best images that I found in my search.

  1. I love these photos! It's too bad parasols don't seem to be ever coming back in style for modern use. (Although I doubt I'd have the patience to carry one around anyways, but it's a nice thought).

    Are you planning on making one?

  2. Oooh...I love the first cover, and the dress with the dark orange roses in the third image.

  3. I think this blog is more informational for me; actually I was looking for dance costume. And I really got interesting knowledge from your blog about 20th century parasols and dancing. Thanks for sharing this information with us.
