There is nothing ordinary about a Sterling and Burke Umbrella. In fact, the Sterling and Burke Umbrella is quite extraordinary!  Sterling and Burke has many, many years of experience in the luxury, bespoke, British umbrella arena.  Every aspect of a S&B Umbrella has been taken into consideration.  Our beautiful, sturdy umbrellas are produced with special embellishments for our discerning clients looking for the finest of the finest. 

They are produced in the Fox Umbrella factory in England using Fox Umbrella Frames.  Since 1868,  Fox Umbrella Frames have been accepted as the highest quality available.  We are delighted to offer the finest umbrellas in the world hand produced with the finest quality materials by the most highly skilled umbrella producers that exist. 

Our umbrellas have collars of thick, hallmarked Sterling Silver.  Thicker than offered by others as to allow for exquisite hand engraving.

Our Doorman's Umbrella is able to be personalized.  We have done away with thin stainless steel collars offered by others.  Our Doorman's Umbrella carries a thick platinum collar that engraves beautifully.

Please allow us the opportunity to assist you in designing what will become your most favourite accessory.


Each Fox Umbrella is a handcrafted in England and is truly a piece or art. The crook at the end of each wood shaft is hand bent. The solid wood shafts on the gentlemen and ladies umbrellas are incredibly sturdy and may be used to support you as you walk. Strong ribs ensure this umbrella will never turn inside out on you, even in the strongest wind. The black mother of pearl closure and the rolled gold or sterling silver collar provide beautiful finishing touches. You will begin to enjoy a bit of rain because of the beautiful sound each drop makes hitting the canopy. 

A fine umbrella is a wonderful gift. Adding custom personalization makes it even more special. Sterling & Burke tries to carry a good selection of umbrellas in our inventory but we are also happy to place a special order. New production typically takes 4-6 weeks.
