This vintage chiffon scarf is painted with an abstract psychedelic flower, rendered in orange, yellow, and blue. The stem, leaves, and center of the sunflower are in the lower left, and the oval petals take up the rest of the scarf. It is hand-signed by the artist in the lower right corner with "Courtin Colette. Paris. Point-Main."

I would guess that this was a vacation souvenir, perhaps from a street vendor in Paris in the late 60s.

This scarf is so gauzy that it virtually disappears when held to the light. The background portions of the scarf are pale yellow, and the orange details look like a pale tan, like Caucasian flesh tones, when the scarf is laid out in one layer. In fact, you can't see much of the color unless you double it up on itself or lay it on a white background. I am only guessing it is silk, since it has no labels and appears hand-painted and artist-signed. It feels rough to the touch, and it has a hand-rolled edge. I know nothing about the artist.

Condition notes: This scarf has some vintage wear and damage I want to note here. One area has rippling in the fabric from some rough handling, or possibly a series of snags that were straightened out. There are also several reddish-brown stains in two of the corners, just in the margin of the scarf. I don't know what these are, but I have two theories: Either it is the previous owner's temporary hair color, or it is smudges from the artist's fingers. One of the stains follows the rolled hem and looks darker than the others. I have tried to show and explain all of the damage. I am selling it as is, and have not washed it for fear of damaging it with exposure to water.

I ship all scarves sealed in plastic bags to protect them from damage in shipping, such as water or odor damage. I ship this first class domestic with delivery confirmation (2-5 days), or first class international (approximately 10-14 days). Where possible, I ship multiple item orders in the same package.

Have any questions? Please ask. I answer quickly. Thank you for visiting! I hope you'll take a look around at the rest of the things in my shop.
