This vintage silk tie with its diamond shapes and floral motif is outstanding! The design features alternating boxes of diamond shapes and flower blossoms. At first glance, this appears to be a red, white, and blue necktie, but it is actually red, off-white, and blue with the flowers in blue boxes, and the embedded diamond shapes primarily in red. The underlying jacquard weave features a pattern of diagonal lines of varying lengths. Regarding the floral motif, a lively discussion ensued when friends were trying to determine the type of flower with iris, orchid, and daffodil as the top contenders. The label on the back of the blade says “Robert Talbott Studio Nordstrom” and the label at the end of the tip says “Robert Talbot” on one side and “Hand Sewn, Finest Silk, Made in U.S.A.”
This 1980’s necktie measures 58 inches in length and is 4 inches across the tip of the blade. It is in excellent vintage condition and is clean with no spots, stains, holes, or scents. This tie with its dynamic floral design is a very handsome tie!
