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. 002 features a rice-paper shade constructed from a vintage souvenir parasol handed out at the 1962 World's Fair in Seattle.

It sits atop a lacquered bamboo column with a hand-painted, rattan-and-leather handle, and a painted coiled-seagrass base. Brass fittings, tan leather accents, and a cloth-covered cord complete the modernist profile.

Limited edition of 2. One in stock and ready to ship.

Handmade 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.
