Tootal tie stiffener Filler to iron press or dry ties vintage 1930s/1950s UNUSED

Tootal tie stiffener Filler to iron press or dry ties vintage 1930s/1950s UNUSED


A card stiffener for Tootal ties, never used.
These delightful items were also known as "tie fillers".
They were used to help preserve the shape of Tootal Tebilized ties.
 
As you can see, they also contain information/advertising for Tootal ties, and laundry tips.
(This was, of course, long before the days of "garment care labels", and the information is a little vague by modern standards.)
 
They date from the 1930s to 1950s - there are minor differences of shape and colour printing, as you can see.
They all have plain backs apart from Style C, which has a yellow back.
Tie stiffeners were put inside the tie:
- to keep the shape of the tie when it was being pressed overnight in a "tie press".
- to help it dry "straight" after washing (if you have ever washed a Tootal tebilized tie, you will appreciate that this is quite a tricky operation)
- to help prevent "seam marks" on the tie while ironing.
 

Condition

Unused.

These are original card tie fillers, which were designed to use with Tootal Tebilized ties.

They were made in the 1930s-1950s, but never used.

They are in excellent, unused condition.

A few are very slightly warped with age, but they are perfectly fit to use.
