moreAn absolutely one of a kind find, this gorgeous vintage red umbrella has one of the loveliest shapes and most unique mechanics. It opens and closes perfectly and feels very sturdy, and features a beautiful soft red leather or faux leather handle and original tassel. What makes it truly special is how it opens.
This umbrella is from the 'Touch N Go' line patented by Polan, Katz & Company in 1956. It is meant to revolutionize umbrellas by being made to be opened and closed with one hand. To open, simply press the top of the umbrella gently against the ground, and it opens to show a beautiful and incredibly strong flower-petal shaped wire structure. To close, simply press a button near the handle - the closure is spring powered and shuts with an alarming SNAP, meant to burst the water off the fabric (and perhaps scare those closest to you!). It's a truly one-of-a-kind design, and frankly superior to any umbrella design before or since!
A gorgeous and useful light parasol, perfect for decor, costumes, or just having the most amazing umbrella on a sunny market day or rainy spring morning! This is the ideal vintage umbrella for a wedding!!
Wraps tightly with a snap closure, some very minor scuffing to the shaft and handle, virtually no wear to the fabric. Free of tears and rips. Measures 35" long including handle and about 34" across when opened. less
