Lady Cas has a Tiger

"The ladies & dandies have taken to ride in the Mall in St James’s Park in such numbers as to be quite a nuisance."

My first purchase in preparation for London life!

My Sabre Umbrella arrived today and I am delighted with it’s lightness, design, and easy operation (no danger of the dreaded finger-pinching upon closing). I have been wanting one ever since I saw the original concept here a couple years back, and now they are at last available on Amazon

This is to replace my beloved Frederick the Great umbrella from Charlottenburg which I sadly left on a plane last year in my haste to disembark, but I suppose this one is a more fitting tribute to the Duke — only mine is quite harmless in comparison
