Not your typical bandana. Late 1950's bright yellow 'puffy' head scarf. The color is bright, fabulous and sure to turn a lot of heads!

Description:
A sunny solid color of bright yellow made of a sheer nylon or polyester (?) with numerous matching flowers sewn on creating a 'puffy' look to this head scarf. The overall shape is a triangle. The flowers are sewn onto it. The scarf is secured by a band where each end is tied under the neck. Item is very light-weight and folds easily.

Label:
The only label is sewn on the back side, it's white with black writing that reads: Made in Japan

Measurements lying flat and loose:
generally I'm assuming this is a one size fits all item
front to triangle point roughly 11.75" / 29.8cm
triangle width 20" / 51cm
overall length of band from tie end to tie end 42" / 107cm

Condition:
There are a few muted stains across the front band of the scarf. I think they are makeup stains. I have not washed this item. It's been stored in a dresser drawer for 50 years. Stains may lift with a hand soak. Flowers are intact. You can see from the backside that 2 of the flowers have been re-sewn/secured. This does not change it's appearance in any way. I see 2 muted stains on flowers. There is a minute pull in the nylon and slight fraying at the edge of the triangle where it is sewn to the band. The triangle piece of fabric does not have an edge seam. Thread at the ends of each tie have unravelled - but less than 1/8". Overall condition is GREAT!

History:
The woman I acquired this item from purchased this in the late 1950s here in the Lower Mainland of BC. Both her and her sister wore it! She said she loved wearing it and has many good memories attached to it. Lucky you!
