Title:Dare to be Free parasol
Date:Jun 2018
Original Size: about 3 feet across
Notes: Recovered Edwardian parasol - I inherited the parasol with a rotting cover, and decided to recover it as a suffragist's accessory, using polyester taffeta and organza ribbon, with printed roundels giving the Womens Freedom League badge. My great-grandmother, who may have owned the parasol, was an active member of the League
