Beautiful piece from the late Victorian era (c1890-1900), 7 1/2″ mother of pearl with sterling silver mount and handle. Decorated with extremely unusual halloween motif. On the “front” the outline of a spider’s web creates a shield (that is engraved with unreadable initials) and two spiders. The reverse shows a folky spider web with three circling it. Marked Sterling. The parasol handle has long been separated from any parasol. There is a bit of damage to one corner where the handle has been dropped and the silver has crumpled. Damage does not show when the piece is displayed flat. $195.
