This is a real beauty - Large Vintage Oriental Japanese Wagasa Bamboo & Paper Parasol - Geisha in great condition.

A vintage Japanese wagasa is a traditional Japanese umbrella made from natural materials like bamboo and washi paper. These elegant umbrellas have been used for centuries in Japan and are known for their exquisite craftsmanship. The process of making a wagasa is highly labor-intensive and requires skilled artisans.

Wagasa feature a wooden frame made from bamboo, which is both lightweight and sturdy. The canopy is crafted from washi paper, a type of handmade paper that is thin, translucent, and known for its durability. The paper is often coated with natural oils to make it water-resistant.

Vintage wagasa are highly sought after as collectibles due to their craftsmanship and cultural significance. They are not only functional but also beautiful works of art, representing a unique aspect of Japanese traditional craftsmanship and aesthetics.
