Fabulous vintage men's bow tie in classic black and gray foulard jacquard by Royal.
This is a clip on, works perfectly, and is in excellent condition.
Measures 4 3/4" by 1 1/2"
Bow ties are often associated with professors, old country doctors, magicians and lawyers ~ intelligent and individualistic characters.
The wonderful, sturdy texture suggests a rayon fabric (no fiber label). Estimated at least 1950s, very possibly late 1940s vintage.
These are becoming more difficult to source, especially in such a terrific colorway, and such excellent condition.
