British Hand Blocked

A beautiful American tie from the mid 1930s, the only label says British Hand Blocked. The fabric is a very fine foulard silk, with hand blocked print that looks like some kind of stylised floral motif. The colour is the most vivid red, and with such fine fabric and thin interlining, the tie makes the smallest knots ever. This would have been an expensive tie when it was made.
