Folding sticks occasionally appeared in the early 19th century, but were found on most Victorian parasols until the 1860s; there was also often a second hinge to make the parasol tilt back at the top of the stick. The hinge for turning the top on one side, parallel with the stick, first appeared in the marquise parasol in the late 18th century, probably named after the Marquise de Pompadour (1721-64). Carriage or Victoria parasols were small with folding sticks so they could shade the face as a fan, for use in the increasingly popular open carriage from circa 1838. They were often very decorative with an embroidered border or trimmed with a fringe.
