    amerika, I like the canopy. From what I can see it seems to have a very nice design. What's the canopy made out of?
    The canopy is made of silky material like that used for the finest ties... http://www.european-umbrellas.com/handmade/handmade.php

    The MOP handle looks like a disco ball.

    Does anyone here own an Oertel? Where is it made? I've asked this on the other umbrella thread and got no answers so hopefully someone comes across this one. I got to say, that MOP Oertel is a bit much .Looks like a sex toy.

    Are there places in America that can change the handles on your umbrellas? Like, if you owned one and wanted a wangee or silver handle, who does that?

    It seems like any after-market work gets referred to Gilbert Stuart, in New York City. I'm not sure if he does handle replacement, but it might be worth a call. He'd be able to direct you to the proper place, if he doesn't (and if such a place exists). Short of that, you might try contacting the manufacturer, but if the manufacturer is overseas, it might be as economical to consider the purchase of a new umbrella.

    Doc,

    That's a closeup of the Peerless.

    For you gents with the pretty umbrellas, how well do they hold up to wind? (like Seattle wind)

    I don't know Seattle, but they stand up to UK breezes with much more firmness than cheaper brollys do.



    Man, some great stuff showing up in this thread. I'm digging all the pics. Nice to see your Smith, HF -- seems like photos of those are a rare commodity.

    Glad to have added to the virtual database then! [​IMG]

    Great pics - the silk looks beautiful. Does it really sound different when it rains?



    This may sound like blasphemy but aren't the nice umbrellas also very heavy?

    I can't say I've noticed any difference, to be honest.

    Very good point, I agree!

    Do you think it's possible to actually fly in a strong wind with the right umbrella, like Mary Poppins? Not that anyone would want to on purpose, but I'm kind of worried about it happening and where I might end up.

    [​IMG] I now want this to happen...


    Oertel Handmade Mother-of-Pearl

    Tony Manero called. He wants his umbrella back... [​IMG]

    (if he doesn't take it, I would though!)

    The MOP handle looks really delicate -- I can't imagine it would last very long without panels chipping or coming off.

    My full-size Brigg travel umbrella is fairly light, as are the solid stick ones I've handled. The metal-tubed golf umbrellas are quite heavy, though.

    Is there any difference in shape between the Brigg golf umbrellas and their normal umbrellas?

    RJman, is your travel Brigg the three-piece screw on version? If so, how do you like it?
