Vintage early 1950s Towncraft Deluxe jacquarded rayon satin wide tie features a stylized figural print in gold, white, and black on a brown ground of what appear to be dive-bombing birds trailing ribbons of smoke as they pursue their missions, accompanied (and no doubt fortified) by the crosses positioned beneath them like shadows. Perhaps the design was produced during the Korean War, and alludes to the hymn “Onward Christian Soldiers” (which Winston Churchill had popularized during WWII when he chose it for a church service during a treaty-signing with FDR)?

Label reads “Resilient Construction, Towncraft Deluxe Cravat, Fabric Loomed in America”, with the design name (“French Edge”) worked into the print on the reverse of the large blade. Measuring 52” long and 4” across the blade, the tie is in near-excellent condition, with one small nick to the reverse of the large blade (photo #5).
