An integral part of the women's pleasure toilet in the second half of the 19th century was the umbrella, which is primarily used as a protection from the sun. Tanned face and hands were considered a sign of bad taste. The ladies of high society, and behind them and other urban women did not want to be like peasant women engaged in physical labor under a scorching sun. Therefore, all those who wanted to maintain an interesting and fashionable while pallor, protects the face from the sun with the help of an umbrella.
