Condition Detail
Beautiful overall, has darker tan marks in a few random places, and in subtle streaks to the interior side of the fabric panels, similar tan toning to the tassels on the handle, the mechanism works well though once the umbrella is fully closed, there's a lower metal inset piece in the wood that appeared to once be a "catch" and no longer catches (does not affect appearance), the wood has several open areas that seem to have hard whitish putty in the crevices, normal darkening to the metal
