Gentleman's folding automatic umbrella in grey marl is 'deployed' by the press of a sturdy button, followed by a slight shake and, boy, does it deploy! It opens with a very forthright snap and whoosh. Perfect for sudden downpours. Cut, made and finished by hand in London. The crook handle is scorched maple from Italy, beautiful. The canopy is poly cotton. Canopy diameter: 100cm or 39 inches. Length when folded: 45cm, 18 inches. A rather satisfactory British Winter essential matching precision engineering with the best of native craftsmanship.
