Description

Our unique umbrella celebrates an extraordinary American quilt (ca. 1875) in The Met collection, which was originally made by Ernestine Eberhardt Zaumseil (American, born Germany, 1828–1904). It bears the Tree of Life pattern, a popular bedcover design since the seventeenth century.

The first such bedcovers, called palampores, were from India and featured fantastic stylized trees. In Zaumseil's quilt, the foliage is more realistic than in the Indian versions. She seems to have traced actual leaves and vines for her appliquéd designs; the central "tree" is taken from grapevine leaves, and maple and beech leaves can also be clearly identified.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just gorgeous and elegant! I loved this umbrella as soon as I saw it in the catalog, and I'm so glad I finally bought it. The idea of being surrounded by a field of flowers on a rainy day was just too perfect to resist! The umbrella is very high quality, with a smooth up-and-down action. The handle is comfortable, and the contrast between the solid green exterior and the cheerful interior is especially striking. I couldn't wait for the first rainy day to try it out, and it has lived up to every expectation. A great purchase!

This is not an umbrella you want to leave on the bus!
