Abstract

In the novel The Ladies’ Paradise, a prominent item sold at the fictional store was parasols. The parasol was not only an item that could be bought at the Ladies’ Paradise, but it also was used as part of the lavish displays around the store. An artifact labeled “Sunshade 15” in the University of Rhode Island’s collection was donated by Mrs. George Ballentine of Kingston, Rhode Island in 1953.
