I am trying to find some info on Porsche umbrellas which were made in the 60’s. Does someone have any info on these?

they were in the 1962 catalog for 'goodies' i believe and were offered into the 1970s. The official name was Hugendubel I believe

I've had a couple of the 1970s version (similar to the photo) and sold them at the LA Lit Meet.

Not a cheap accessory these days but I like the idea.
