Vintage 40s 50s WIDE Neck Tie Necktie Olive Green Deco
I love this vintage 1940s/1950s neck tie, making a bold statement with neutral business-like colors! Feels like rayon, in a twill weave. The print features a deco style design of arcing swathes of light goldenrod, cream and dark brown against an olive drab background that shades closer to yellow/gold tones near the bottom of the tie. The background is accented by wavy-lined cross hatching that shades from dark brown to slightly lighter brown as the green shades closer to gold.
"Appleskin" Twill by Hut, and a store tag for The National in Rochester.
No stains or holes seen. I suspect that the ombre/shading effect is probably inadvertent, from dye fading over the decades. I actually like the effect, but some may not.
