What no lady would be without, circa 1810-1820. Parasols protected a lady's skin which was fashionably pale - definitely not tanned like today. Tanned skin was only seen on people who had to work in the outdoors in order to survive. And, did you know that, if a gentleman gave a lady a parasol, it was considered very personal, and he had intentions of seeking her hand in marriage.
