A Liberty surprise

Imagine my delight when I received an email from the archivist at Liberty's of London. I had blogged about this scarf some time in October. Anna Buruma informed me it was from 1968.... Thank you Anna,   sounds as if you have an enviable job.


Wonder what the date is on this one with a Canadian theme. Most likely a royal visit year. Could be 1959, 67, 70, 71. My money is on 1967, Centennial year.

However, this one presents a problem for me. A rather Moorish design, with an old label rather than an imprint......early-mid 50s perhaps?.


  1. How exciting to know that Liberty is 'watching' you! Good luck with finidng out about the last scarf :D

  2. Great to know when your scarf was issued. Love them all!

  3. Liberty, wow,what a lovely surprise for you, also ref to your thoughts re the Canadian scarf ~ I was still living in Canada in the 60's and as per all the schoolchildren across Canada we took a part in the country wide celebrations for the Centennial in 1967, I wonder if it is that which the scarf is commemerating?

  4. I think I would like Anna's job. No real surprise that she is keeping a keen eye on your covetable collections!

  5. I love the Royal scarf....and I laughed about the car too...only because I had nowhere urgent to go though!

  6. Beautiful scarves you have collected. Wishing you the best for 2012

  7. they are all beautiful!
