I am not sure what to say about this except it is so beautiful that no picture could do it justice. It is a lace parasol that is used to keep the direct sunlight off of you. IT IS NOT AN UMBRELLA. If you go in the rain with it you will get wet. It is 23" in diameter. It has ruffled flounce, silk ribbons and a knotted rosette in the center on top. It is delicate, dainty and just so beautiful! It was very hard to take a good picture of mine to use to show you. I did the best I could and hopefully between my photos and description you will have a good understanding of this product.
