Vintage 1960s ready-knot cravat scarf UNUSED childrens TRICEL


A vintage cravat, made in the 1960s or early 1970s for boys and girls.
Made of Tricel.
 
Made in England by Ladybird (in the days when Ladybird was an up-market brand, sold in independent drapers' shops).
This item was originally advertised by Ladybird as a "Ready Knot Scarf", but I think nowadays we would probably call it a cravat.
It was unsold shop stock from the early 1970s, and still has an old 1970s shop tag attached.
I have included a picture of the box, to show how it would have been worn.
You can see that the decimal price sticker on the box is covering up a scar, presumably where the original price was removed.
The hand-written shop tag has a decimal price on (£1.99), which I assume was added in 1971.
 
There are no washing instructions - I would suggest hand-wash separately.


Size: One size.
The pictures on the shop box suggest that it is intended for older primary school age boys and girls.
The length, tip to tip, is 35 inches ( 89 cm).
The width is just over two inches (5.5 cm).


Colour
Choice of colour.
  • Blue (Royal Blue or Navy Blue)
  • Red
  • Bronze
  • Green (an Olive Green)
  • Pink (Salmon Pink or Bright Pink)

Condition
New and unused - but about 50 years old.
In view of their age, these garments should be hand-washed before use, and treated more gently than if they were recently made.
Please remember that they were made in the days when clothing standards (making and labelling) were not as strict as they are nowadays.
These garments may not conform to modern standards, and should not be used for everyday wear.
