Vintage Nina Ricci Designer Silk Scarf - Paris 1960s - Beige/Baby Pink
A gorgeous 100% pure silk scarf made in Paris in the 1960s by the designer Nina Ricci.

The scarf is square, with a central block of colour in baby pink, and mink/beige outer block. The hand rolled and sewn edges are in baby pink and are still thick and plump, as they should be.

The Nina Ricci signature is in black in one corner of the pink central block, together with the word 'Paris'.

The scarf is in very good condition, with a small defect which I tried to catch on camera. It's the last photo. It looks like the grain of the silk has moved apart where the scarf has been folded over the years. It's about 2 inches long, just above the fold as it is now. It looks like a fine grey mark, but it isn't a mark. If I didn't tell you, you probably wouldn't notice it, but I'm telling you anyway.

A really quite luxurious scarf in colour, material, design and name. Enjoy!

Diaphanous Black Tasselled Beaded Embroidered Evening Scarf/Wrap - Vintage 1950s
A sleek and graceful black evening scarf in a fine, sheer diaphanous material with beaded embroidered top and bottom edges which have tassels too, and beaded hand embroidered swirls throughout.

I'm not entirely sure what the material is. Possibly Polyester.

This scarf is very long at 66 inches and can be used as a wrap, or wrapped around the neck with the ends hanging down the front. It is in beautiful condition and I doubt that it has been worn much, if at all! It measures 66 by 13 inches and the tassels add on an extra 7 inches both ends. Would make a lovely addition to any evening outfit.

Length: 66 inches x 13 inches with a further 7 inches at each end for the tassels
(167 cm x 33cm x 17 at each end for tassels)

Rare Vintage 1940s Hand Embroidered Black Crepe Scarf/Necktie
A rare and very beautiful vintage crepe scarf/necktie dating from the 1940s.

The hand embroidery at both pointed ends of the scarf is exquisite in gold metallic, blue, pink and fawn thread, and the scarf is edged all the way round.

It measures approximately 6 inches wide and 32 inches long. It is in fabulous condition apart from one pin prick hole which I have shown in the third photograph. This can be seen when the scarf is held up to the light but is imperceptible otherwise.

A unique item that would definitely attract comment when worn. Wear it as a tie, a scarf, tied to the side, the front, to a handbag handle as decoration, around the head (in many ways). A really versatile one off!

Length: 32 inches long x 6 inches wide.

A wonderful addition to your vintage wardrobe.

Pure Silk Vera Neumann Scarf - Vintage 1970s - Sage Green/Dusky Orange/Tan/Cream
An eye-catching elongated, pure silk scarf by Vera Neumann, the celebrated American designer and favourite of Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and Bess Truman.

It is decorated with a geometric pattern in sage green and shades of dusky orange, tan and cream. The hand-rolled, hand-stitched edges are in tan and are still nice and plump. The signature is present in the bottom corner.

It measures approx. 43 x 14 inches and is in excellent vintage condition, with the exception of some tiny dark marks which I have shown. (Look closely at the right hand side of photo No. 5, about half way up, near the rolled edge.)

A good quality, medium weight silk with dusky colours.

Scarves by Vera Neumann are highly collectible. Mention vintage scarves and the name "Vera" immediately comes to mind. This is a fine example of one of her geometric designs.
