Description

Long and lovely and light. This is a classic, collectible Vera scarf that will never go out of style.

Vera, One of the great names in scarf design. She was a woman who could combine colors and make lines that were graceful and edgy.
She was of the era of MadMen. Pushing the boundaries of a new vision

This scarf is the pefect example of Vera design: a blend of greys and golds on a cream background, the falling of leaves, graceful, yet with their own personality.

It is a soft silk chiffon in excellent condition. 12.5 by 40 inches

.About VERA:
With World War II in full swing, Vera found linen supplies dwindling and went in search of alternative materials for her products. She came across some parachute silk at an army surplus store, an event which marked the beginning of her scarf business. She kept her signature on art transferred to the scarves, thus creating the first signature scarf in history. "Vera scarves" became immediately popular and Vera herself was soon on first-name terms with well-known women around the country. Marilyn Monroe was a fan as were Grace Kelly and First Lady Bess Truman, who selected Vera fabric from Schumacher, Inc. to decorate the third-floor solarium windows and upholstery of the White House. Women from around the country also chose Vera products for their color and cheerful prints.

If you don't own a Vera, you don't have a scarf.

What goes around, comes around.
Love of quality and beauty from the past is happiness.
