Description: This is a beautiful quality Scottish tartan silk sash or scarf. This is the Gordon Highlanders Regimental Tartan. The colors are navy blue, deep green, black and yellow. This would normally be used with Highland dress, but it would also make a very nice scarf.
A kind & knowledgeable person has let me know a little more about this item, including which tartan it actually is.
"It's quite 'dour' ( Scots for subdued, gloomy ) in keeping with ancient military needs for low profile colors ( e.g Black Watch tartan ) to outwit the 'enemy' ."
They also pointed out this other fact:
"The fewer colors incorporated in a a tartan or plaid set ( design ), the older the design from a historical point of view."
Sizing: 12" wide by 92" long, exclusive of its fringe. There is an 8" fringe at either end
It is in excellent condition with no wear, tear, stains or odors, in fact, this scarf looks like it saw little, if any, use, and was very well cared for over the years.
This is a beautiful quality sash - these silk sashes are quite expensive to purchase new, and probably not as nice.
Many thanks to Christian for helping me out with this item.
