Here is a rare and exquisite Circa 1910 Art Nouveau Jugendstil Viennese Secession Parasol Umbrella by the Vienna Workshops – Wiener Werkstätte (attributed.) This high quality parasol is skillfully finished in every detail.
The round knob is a stylish jugendstil floral wood carving painted beige and accented with green; 2 rings marked “double” are placed on the shaft, a little mother of pearl button closes the umbrella, the end is protected with a brass cup; the fabric is a strong silky cream textile, with an elegant dark green and cream stripe border. Ruffled cream fabric is gathered at the top of the canopy, and at the meeting of the ribs on the shaft; a color matching tassel hangs from the shaft. Details, details!
A feminine, tasteful and elegant design, without the frills of Victorian lace. A suffragette would have carried this parasol with pride!
Condition: Please look at all the pictures. The sewing on the canopy is unraveled in 2 places. This is very easily mended, since the fabric is not ripped, it just came unsewn. I can discern some light discolorations (probably water stains) on the canopy’s cream fabric. Otherwise, this parasol is in great condition, the fabric is strong, the green and cream border is mint, the wood solid, the ribs in good order.
Dimensions: 31″ overall height; the wooden floral carved knob is 3″ diameter; the top end above the canopy (wood with protective brass cup) is 3.75″ long; the canopy is 21″ high x 34″ in diameter; the tassel itself is 6″ long.
The word “Double” is incised on each brass ring.
Last picture: This parasol would have accessorized so well Emilie Flöge’s sensational creation, here pictured with her companion Gustav Klimt, photograph by Hans Bohler, 1910.
