Description

The colorful tin-glazed earthenware known as maiolica reveals much about the culture and spirit of Renaissance Italy. Honoring that legacy, this elaborate umbrella pattern was suggested by the rich, scrolling ornament on a glazed terracotta dish in The Met collection. It was likely made about 1525 at the Bergantini family workshop, one of the most important in Faenza in the first half of the 16th century.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this umbrella 50 years ago my parents took the family to Venice. It was cold and overcast and windy. I remember the gondola ride and I remember walking along the seaside to St. Mark's square. My Father said I could have one souvenir and I chose a scarf from a street vendor. I wanted the one with the curlicue swirls and my choice was pink on black or turquoise on black. I chose turquoise This umbrella matches my scarf perfectly. I still have the scarf and wear it in the winter when I will need this umbrella. The umbrella is compact enough to fit in the generous pocket of my rain coat. I can't wait until our next rainy season to try out my new umbrella and wear my old scarf.
