Worn by a County Down bride on her wedding day in Portaferry, August 1909, this eight-panelled Edwardian linen parasol is decorated with embroidered grapes and vine leaves, as well as cutwork shamrocks. The wooden handle is stamped with the name of the well-known London umbrella manufacturer Paragon Fox Ltd, a trading name of Samuel and William Fox.
