The vivid colour evokes images or deep clear mountain lakes. A very classic colour that helps balance out the whimsical form of the umbrella, making them suitable for both formal and informal wear. The delicate movement of the raindrop provide the large form of the enamelled umbrella top with a little more interest and eye catching power.

The surface effect on this piece was created with a technique called enamelling. Enamel is a powdered glass which fuses to metal when fired at temperatures around 1500°F. When heated, the powder flows and hardens, becoming a smooth and vitreous surface. Enamel is very durable. However, if handled roughly or exposed to chemical cleaners it may crack or become dull. Therefore, please clean this piece with only a polishing cloth and handle with care.
