I have adored this umbrella since I was a child. My grandfather had a small collection of canes and this umbrella and they all stood behind the front door. The fabric is badly tattered and one of the dog's ears is broken but I still adore him. He is carved from wood and has glass eyes. He is a very dignified gentleman, just as my grandfather was.

    Is it marked on any of the canes?
    It looks to be a really interesting fabric as well.

    @s_p: I wish I had some of his canes. He had one that opened up into a small seat so he could rest his butt at sporting events, etc.

    @vetraio50: I don't see any marks. I've always loved the plaid. Like I said, the fabric is in terrible condition but I don't want to replace it.
