In 1890 a line of river steamships operating along the Ohio River was founded by Gordon C. Green. Originally named The Green Line, the name was later changed to The Delta Queen Steamship Co. The Delta Queen, a stern wheel steamship was built in 1926 and is still operational today. The Mississippi Queen, a paddle wheel driven steamboat, was built in 1976. She was sold for scrap in 2009 and dismantled in 2011. This lovely silk scarf shows both of these steamships in the print. Also in the print is the American Flag and the ship wheels. In each of the four corners there is an oval with the name, The Delta Queen Steamship Co. The hem is hand rolled and sewn. The scarf is burgundy with an outer border of navy blue. The ships are white and the leaves and scrolls are gold color. And, of course, Old Glory is Red, White and Blue.

Later versions of this scarf have been made with polyester material, but this scarf is made from silk and is sure to be a delight to anyone who loves the history of the old steamships.

Condition: Very Good

There is one small spot that appears on the burgundy silk just above one of the golden leaves. It can be seen in one of the photos.
