1950s Jacqmar Silk Scarf - Brown and Green Floral - Hand Rolled Edges
A pretty Jacqmar silk scarf from the 1950s with brown flowers on green stems and leaves. The floral pattern is on a slightly paler brown background. The edging is hand rolled and sewn, and is still plump and rounded, as it should be.
The Jacqmar signature is in white at one corner of the scarf and black in another corner.
The final photo shows the scarf laid out to show the whole pattern. The color appears different because of the light in my kitchen. The true color is that which you see in all of the other photos, but you can at least see the complete pattern.
A lovely scarf with no issues that I can see. No pulls, holes or marks. In excellent condition, it has been very well looked after over the years.
