Vintage Swaine Adeney Brigg Malacca Prince Of Wales Umbrella :
Thanks for checking out this vintage very high quality malacca and silver umbrella.This is a vintage Prince of Wales Umbrella, made by exclusive British manufacturers Swaine Adeney Brigg Ltd, in 1955/1956. Dated by the Hallmarks on the Sterling Silver Handle Cap and Collar. (see the pictures) The company is still going and has the royal warrant to the Queen and Prince of Wales. When this umbrella was produced the company was the umbrella maker to the Queen Mother and her royal warrant is also on the silver collar. (see picture 6).
The umbrella has been made with Malacca, has Silver Collar and Handle Cap. Also has a metal (brass) point cap. It has some wear and tear being over 50 years old.The umbrella shaft has been damaged at some point and repaired. It is in full working order so the damage was only cosmetic. The repair is in picture 10 and 11.I looked at their website and the current malacca Prince of Wales umbrella is £350! These days they make them with silver plate collars instead of the sterling silver in this vintage edition. I contacted their repairs department. If you wanted they could replace the shaft of the umbrella. It would cost @£104 and take about 4 weeks. It's not necessary but I thought you might like to know in advance.I happily accept Paypal and also take cash or postal orders. I can post worldwide, and the umbrella will be securely wrapped and packaged in bubble wrap. Delivery will be by 2nd class recorded post. £7 quoted is for postage to the UK. I have put an estimate for delivery to USA. If you want delivery abroad send me a message and I will do you a quote.Many thanks for your interest, good luck and happy offerding.
