Fulton Umbrellas

Birdcage (1967)

Founded in 1956 by Arnold Fulton, Fulton Umbrellas is the UK’s largest manufacturer of umbrellas. In 1967 Fulton launched its iconic Birdcage umbrella. The success story began when The Queen Mother saw the Birdcage and thought its unique domed PVC cover would offer better protection, as well as allowing her to remain as visible as possible in even the wettest conditions. The Birdcage soon became her regular umbrella of choice, and this tradition has been passed down to HM The Queen who now uses the Birdcage in a range of colours to coordinate with her wardrobe.
