This 1760’s narrow jacquard necktie with its diamond pattern is a classic. The tie is a blue-grey shade which sometimes looks blue and other times looks grey. Small evenly-spaced diamond shapes run diagonally and add to the classic feel of the tie. The tie was created by Hansom, and the logo of a horse-drawn hansom cab and driver is printed on the lining as well as being stitched into the label. The label simply says “Hansom” with the RN number and “Made in U.S.A.” bordering one side and “100% Polyester” on the other.
The tie measures 55 inches in length and 3 ¼ inches across the tip. The lining shows some slight age yellowing, but the tie is in otherwise excellent condition. It is clean and there are no spots, stains, scents, holes, or tears. This classic Hansom tie is indeed a handsome tie!
