Vintage TWA Umbrella Black Bear Logo T.W.A. Collectible Trans World Airlines Parasol Wood Handle Made In Italy Rare Aviation Memorabilia 60s


Vintage TWA umbrella with black bear logo. T.W.A. Collectible. Trans World Airlines parasol with a wood handle, made in Italy. Rare aviation memorabilia circa 1960s.

Approximate diameter when fully opened:
38 ½”

Approximate length from top tip to handle:

Marked on a tag sewn into the interior seam:
“100% Poliammidica

Translated to from Italian and Romanian to English:
100% Polymide

Structurally, excellent and in complete working order, despite its age. There is a bit of weakness in the fabric some of the tips (please see the final photo) and the umbrella itself is delicate and should be treated gently (it is not recommended that it be opened and closed excessively). There is wear, staining and discoloration to what was once the white nylon, especially at the upper areas. The fabric seems a bit brittle from age. The bears have crease lines and fading from years of storage. The metal ring at the top base of the wood tip has some pitting and rusting, and there is wear and some white paint marks to the black cap on the tip. The wood handle is in very good condition, with some wear to the finish from use. Overall, good condition, with flaws and wear considered in this very rare, airline collectible that has withstood use and the test of time.
