The World’s Fair Collection is a family of fixtures handmade from sustainably sourced materials and upcycled antique paper parasols given to visitors at the 20th century’s most illustrious cultural expo.

Model No. 003 features a rice-paper shade constructed from a vintage souvenir children's parasol handed out at the Japanese Pavilion during the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago.

It sits atop a lacquered bamboo column and split-coconut base. Brass fittings, rattan wrapping, and a cloth-covered cord complete the modernist profile.  

Made-to-order by hand in New York by artist Christopher Tennant.

* As all of our parasols are individually sourced antiques, the resulting shades may have small imperfections and repairs, reflecting their historic character.
