The purple parasol is made of handmade bobbin Chantilly lace & named this after the city of Chantilly, France.  Though called Chantilly lace, most of the lace which bore this name were actually made in Bayeux, France and Geraardsbergen (now in Belgium).  Chantilly lace is known for its fine, abundant detailing.  All parasols during this time period were delicate, fragile & expensive (Metropolitan Museum).
