Description


This exceptional antique parasol handle has a cylindrical tapering form.


The surface of this exceptional antique gold parasol handle is embellished with exceptional pale blue guilloche enamel, segmenting the domed terminal with a plain 18ct yellow gold girdle, in addition to a hallmarked border to the rim.


This exceptional parasol set features the original, hallmarked 9ct yellow gold rib tips/ferrules, each with a skittle shaped form.


This impressive antique set is fitted to the original hinged leatherette box with a satin and velvet lined interior, securing with a push fit catch.


The interior and exterior surfaces of the box bear the retailer's mark 'Brigg & Sons, St James's St London, Avenue de Lopéra Paris'*; this indicates the high quality of the piece.


* Thomas Brigg & Sons was founded in 1836 and were known for their production of umbrellas, canes and later whips and they retained establishments in both London and Paris. In 1893, Thomas Brigg and Sons received its first Royal Appointment from Her Majesty Queen Victoria; this honoured them to be the first umbrella/parasol makers with an appointment. They later were bestowed a further Royal Appointment by His Majesty King Edward VII.

An article written in Country Life - Volume 22 (1907) proclaimed "the firm justly pride themselves on the fact that everything used is made by their own workmen. Whether it is the delicate jewellery work of their tortoiseshell and amber handles, or the weaving of the special silk they use for their umbrellas and en-tout-cas, everything is made by the firm's highly trained workpeople".
