40s Necktie Brown & Cream Vintage Autumn Wheat Spidery Floral Print Jacquard VFG Selected Fabrics Resilient Construction
This vintage necktie most likely dates to the early 1940s, before the extra-wide bellywarmer ties became so popular. I love the colorway, primarily cream and chestnut brown, with accents of soft peach and dark red. The fabric is most likely rayon, with a large scale geometric woven jacquard pattern that is more matte satin than twill weave. The print makes me think of autumn, with wheat stalks, and spidery flowers that might be asters or mums, along with a large area that suggests stylized trellises or espalier.
