Circa 1949-1951 blue jacquard rayon satin wide tie features a striking Surrealist-inspired tree-and-road panel design: One flame-like red and white tree at the very tip of the front blade connected by a ribbon of ice blue road to the second tree, up above, which a single red leaf seems to be blowing towards.
And, though the tonally jacquarded designs in Bold Look ties typically have nothing to do with the prints on them, the abstract cloud shapes and wispy streaks on this one work beautifully to enhance its wind-blown effect.
Label reads “Cohen’s Department Store, Lehighton, PA.”. Cohen’s was opened in 1932 by William Cohen and run after his retirement by his son Sam; it appears to have closed in the 1970s.
Tipped in white satin, the tie measures 51” long by 4.25” across the front blade. Very good condition, with two very faint tea colored spots five inches up the blade (photo #5).
