Description

The hare in African folk tales is a trickster and in Irish folklore those characters who harm hares often suffer dreadful consequences. Live hares were often presented as a gift of love and have been regarded as a symbol of fertility. A familiar sight in the British countryside, the hare has given rise to local place names. An example in Scotland is ‘Murchland’, ‘murchen’ being a Scots word for a hare. The decorative resin mould is fitted to a beech wood stem and finished with gilt furnishings.

Handmade with our own lightweight yet durable frame this umbrella is perfect for those wet commutes in the city.
