lot of vintage 1950s silk ascots Saks Fifth Avenue bow ties cravat
Lot of nine vintage silk ascot ties. Five of the nine have 1950s vintage era "Saks Fifth Avenue, all silk" labels. Two without labels, one with a "Homestead Men's Shop" label, one with a "100% pure silk, made in Italy" label. Classic prints and colors, including polka dots, paisley and classical flora, as shown. The solid red and sky blue SFA ascots are shantung, with nubby texture through the weave. The black and gunmetal gray silk Italian made ascot is reversible. The dark blue with white polka dots (unmarked) is a wider width and shorter length, probably 1930s- 1940s. All are in vey good to excellent condition, minimal signs of wear/ handling- exceptions noted. A beautiful collection!
