    £18.99 Members' price *


    An umbrella inspired by Anglo-Saxon jewellery in the British Museum.

    The seven centuries of the Anglo-Saxon period in England (c. 400-1100 AD) were a time of extraordinary transformation in almost every aspect of its culture, producing an explosion of artistic creativity. Anglo-Saxon craftsmanship in metalwork displays highly distinctive stylistic features.

    This design, based on brooches from this period, depicts the sophisticated craft of this early jewellery.

    The umbrella has been designed exclusively for the British Museum. It is supplied with a protective slip in the same design.
