Outstanding example of the early work of Paris Couturier fashion following World War II. This silk scarf in the most marvelous hue of rosy beige or mauve. This magnificent piece, the forerunner of the now, ever present souvenir scarf, found at every tourist destination in the world. Rare to say the least.
Measurements : 46 inches long and 12 - 1/2 inches wide. The basic color closely matches the F6B680 code for color allowing of course for the silver weave of the jacquard.
It is woven with silvery, iridescent, images of the Eiffel Tower, Moulin Rouge, Théâtre de la Madeleine, Arc de Triomphe, Paris Opera House aka Palais Garnier, the word PARIS, and twining garlands.
The ends have self fringe, the edges have self woven selvage so, the loom on which this was made was just at 12 - 12 inches wide. Attributed to the House of Dior. Purchased in Paris after WW II and safely tucked away for so long.
It is in clean lovey condition. 100% wonderful silk, strong and so elegant. No holes, no stains, no damage from wear. PLEASE Note one light fade mark 1/2 x 1/8 inch. Pictured and greatly enlarged. Price is adjusted for this light flaw.
