From May 2019 to March 2020 I worked as the point-person for Umbra's Window category,and designed for Umbra Ltd, as well as in-house brands of many large mass retail stores throughout USA, Canada and Europe. In this role I designed many, many finials. Window is Umbra's largest category by far (40% of the company's profits and 3-4 times the size of any other category), and Umbra's oldest category - Umbra means 'shade' in Latin and a window shade was the company's first product. 
Here are 2 designs that went to market under the Umbra brand label.
