Department Store Stern Brothers American

Not on view

This parasol is an early artifact of the Stern Brothers store at their original address in the prestigious Ladies Mile, where the finest ladies commodities in New York were sold. The coordination of colors is particularly effective, and the green and purple of the canopy is repeated in the color of the glass stones in the handle.
