Fabulous men's bow tie in gray with pink embroidery in a flaming torch motif by quality menswear accessory manufacturer, Wembley.
This is a clip on, and works perfectly, and is in excellent condition.
Measures 4 3/4" by 1 1/4"
Bow ties are often associated with professors, old country doctors, magicians and lawyers ~ intelligent and individualistic characters.
Also, it's prom season, and wedding season is soon, too...lots of graduation parties, engagement parties...
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.
