My new Liberty scarves


The collection has grown.


This vivid deep gold/chartreuse paisley is a favorite colour of mine, in fact, I am wearing this colour in a small floral print as I type.


 Art Nouveau large print....unusually it is hand rolled and 34" square. Mint condition. Some how it just does not 'do' it for me, although it has all the right ingredients.

.

 Now, this one does ring all the bells , how 50s can you get! (maybe 1960s) . The  grey and yellow rose print is my latest favorite.


Difficult to date the polka dot scarf, not too old I would guess.
Not sure how many Liberty scarves I have now, its been a few years since I did a little stocktaking.....800???

  1. 800!! Lordy. Is that a record Jan? You might hold the National Collection of LIberty Scarves or something. I love that yellow and grey one too.

  3. I love that yellow rose print, it's so very much of its time, and so stylish.

  4. I'm echoing the comment above about you writing a book about the scarves - you definitely should!
