Corn dolly umbrella

A full size umbrella, the original made by M.Lambeth was a bit smaller and some slight alterations have been made. On the enlarged picture a reversed weave bangle has been added in place of the corn heads which I had done to match the original umbrella. I think the alteration looks good and went well on the cat walk.

Very cleverly placed swan corn dolly which has  been gold plated. Something different for a corn dolly. The original swan was designed by Anne Renfrew and shown in The Complete book of Straw Craft and corn dollies by Doris Johnson and Alec Coker.
