Vintage 50s rayon satin wide tie features stylized heraldic designs in a diamond shape, in black, yellow and white on a deep red ground.
Tipped in white satin, the tie is labelled "A Louvre Cravat" , with a wonderful novelty logo of an artist's palette. Though I've come across Louvre neckwear before (a late 40s example), I've been unable to learn anything about this company. Judging by their logo, though, it is evident they saw lofty aesthetic associations as appropriate to their designs, reflecting the joyous explosion of creativity that characterized the Bold Look era.
Measuring 49" long by 4 ¾" across the front blade, the tie is in excellent condition.
