Rare RAINIER Vintage 9x9 Canvas Umbrella Seattle Tent & Awning Depression Era
Vintage All Canvas Umbrella Tent. Rare early design with interior pole set. Measures approximately 9x9 and is over 7 feet tall. Rainier Brand by Seattle / Yakima Tent & Awning Co. Rainier Brand has been around since the 1800s and still makes tents to this day. I was told this was from the 30s, but couldnt verify exact age, though style and design put it in antique depression era timeline. This tent has a large awning that also serves as a cover for the door. The door zipper functions beautifully. The screens are perfectly intact, with no holes. 1950s and later umbrella tents had exterior frame that tent hung on with loops on top and on each corner. This style is an earlier design that I was told was developed in the 20s and popular in depression era tents.
Single pole inside holds umbrella poll set that connects to corners and down to floor supports. All canvas walls and flooring in great condition, with only a few small pinholes in floor (as pointed out in photo) and minor wear here and there. Some wear/fraying on corners/edges, as shown in photos with 1 missing grommet.I believe all of the door/window ties are still there too. The tag was fraying off, but I reattached it to the interior door screen with thread. The underside corner support pole patches may or may not be original. The canvas walls and roof are in excellent condition with minimal marks/stains. The screens are in near perfect condition. The poles are fully functional, but are showing wear. The stamp with logo and name has faded and is barely legible. No bags or stakes included. Overall, this tent is in excellent shape for being up to about 100 years old. It was stored inside a closet, and not in a musty garage/basement, thus, the threads are strong and there is no mold anywhere. I do my best to describe the condition of the tent, but I'm not perfect and may have missed a small issue here or there, but it is very rare. Please understand this tent is 75-100 years young and you should not be expecting a tent in mint condition. This tent is usable, but I cannot guarantee how watertight it is, nor will I guarantee how long it will hold up to your wear and tear.
I've been collecting tents for many years, but mostly collect Coleman tents, and have owned tents by Rainier, White Stag, Hirsch Weis, Morsan, Hettrick, Sears, Hillary, and others.
