"I've seen scarves from all over the world but none have had the perfection of the Chinese scarves," Vera said. "I thought it would be a great coup to make scarves there."

And so she did, for only one year (1974) in Shanghai, to celebrate her company's 30th year anniversary. This marked the first time that American designs were produced in the People's Repulic of China and made for sale in the United States. Vera was as much a trend-setter in business as she was in design!

Only 8 designs were created that year for Chinese production, so these scarves are very rare!

Pay attention to the Vera signature and you will see its uniqueness! The Chinese characters you see mean "truth" and "honesty", which is how Vera's name translates.

The scarf was made with pure, thick, incredible Chinese silk. It features a perfect example of Vera's Sumi-e brushwork where "less in more"... just a few well chosen brushstrokes create a gorgeous world of Chinese cherry blossoms. The colors are a gemstone mix of aquamarine blue, jade green and dark steely grey accents.

A hand-rolled hem in aquamarine blue silk adds contrast and tailoring, and shows the quality and care that went into the creation of every single Vera scarf.

Measures 27" square. Nice vintage condition... 8-10 smallish rust colored spots might or might now launder out in your care. They lower the price but not the beauty of collectibility of this rare Vera scarf.
