Floral Tradescant Umbrella
Brighten up a rainy day with this beautiful umbrella, which is decorated with illustrations taken from a manuscript painted by John Tradescant the Elder, gardener of Hatfield House. This manuscript was among the eclectic collections of Elias Ashmole (1617-1692), which came to form the basis of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. Then, in 1860 it was transferred to the Bodleian Library.
Our Tradescant umbrella folds down to a compact size, with a mechanical opening & closure, perfect for popping in a bag but still substantial enough to protect against those unexpected downpours! Exclusively available from the Bodleian Shop.
