Navy blue Tootal tie Vintage 1950s red lion cotton RED QUALITY unused IMPERFECT


An heraldic tie by Tootal.
All cotton.
Made in England, in the 1950s, but never used.
 
This tie was unsold shop stock from the 1950s, and has been in storage at the shop for the last half-century or so.
It is in almost perfect condition, but it will need to be handled more gently than a modern tie.
The little circular "Tootal Red Quality" tag is still sewn onto the front of the tie - on the back of the label is a list of Tootal patent numbers from before the war.
The main colour is navy blue, with an heraldic shield in white, with a red lion rampant and a crown above.
 
The fabric is all cotton.
Red quality
All cotton
Made in England
 
Wash as wool
Unlined
Width................ 3 1/2 inches............... 9 cm
Length................... 44 inches..............112 cm
 
This is a vintage item, and it was made in the days when ties were a quite few inches shorter than they are today.
You may find the style unfamiliar at first.


Condition:

Unused vintage item, with original tag attached.

Almost perfect condition - but there is a slight fault at the tip of the tie.

This appears to be a manufacturing fault (a couple of threads are lighter than they should be).

As you can see from the photographs, this is not very noticeable.
