This lovely example of a walking umbrella dates to the 1950's/60's and has some lovely details.
It has a sturdy walking stick style handle made of polished wood, matched at the other end by a long point finished off with a metal ferrule; possibly brass but as it's tarnished I can't be certain.
The canopy is made from a pale green and blue silky fabric that seems to change colour depending on how the light hits it. It's good and deep so is sure to keep off the rain. The tips of the frame and the collar at the end of the handle are in a lovely rose gold-coloured metal. This also has the initials NP stamped into it ~ probably the metal.
It's beautifully made, beautifully finished and will last years longer than any modern fold-up brolly!
The brand is 'Rainshield' a well known maker of British umbrellas.
In excellent condition, no holes, no damage, everything is there and works. There are just some light vertical marks on the fabric where the umbrella has been folded up for some length of time. This is not unexpected as it looks to have been hardly used.
