A fabulous multicolor abstract design 100% silk scarf made by the Parisien designer, Nina Ricci in the 1960s. The scarf has plump hand sewn edges and is in good condition except for the fact that the edging has come apart in one corner. It can probably be re-rolled and stitched, but I have left it 'as is'. I have reflected this fault in the price.
Apart from the one fault, this is a really vibrant and cheerful scarf and a very good item to add to your vintage designer collection.
Size: approx. 34 x 34 inches (87 x 87 cm)
Price: 19 euro
A vibrant multicoloured chiffon silk scarf by Ungaro, this scarf has interior panels of pinks and purples with anemone flowers in reds and yellows with green leaves. The outer edges have wide patterned margins of red, orange and yellow.
Made of 100% silk chiffon this scarf has hand rolled and stitched hems which are still plump and fat as they should be.
There are several stains on this scarf. I have laundered it and the stains remained. They look to me as though someone wearing it in the past has sprayed perfume on to their neck and behind the ears, while still wearing the scarf. This is a real shame, and although the stains are not seen while the scarf is being worn, they are nevertheless still there, and so I have priced accordingly. The last photo shows some of the stains, there are a few more.
Stains aside this is still a fabulously cheerful and quite rare designer scarf.
Size: approx. 34 x 34 nches (86 x 86 cm)

Vintage Black Silk Scarf with Blue and Red Ribbons
An attractive, large black scarf in 100% silk. Made in the 1950s with a heraldic regalia type design of a central large blue ribbon with red and blue tassels and ribbons with gold highlights. The red edges are hand rolled and stitched, and are still nice and plump, as they should be.
This scarf is in very good condition with the exception of two very fine 'pull' lines which which I have shown in the last photo. These lines run the length of the scarf, but you actually cannot see them unless you hold the scarf up to the light and look extremely closely. In fact I didn't see them at all at first, until I was taking the photos. But I'm telling you, because you need to know. This is reflected in the price.
A lovely everyday scarf to add to your vintage collection.

Black Tasselled and Bead Embroidered Evening Scarf / Wrap - Vintage 1950s
A sleek and graceful black evening scarf in a fine, sheer diaphanous material with beaded embroidered top and bottom edges which have tassels too, and beaded hand embroidered swirls throughout.
I'm not entirely sure what the material is. Possibly Polyester.
This scarf is very long at 66 inches and can be used as a wrap, or wrapped around the neck with the ends hanging down the front. It is in beautiful condition and I doubt that it has been worn much, if at all! It measures 66 by 13 inches and the tassels add on an extra 7 inches both ends. Would make a lovely addition to any evening outfit.
