This unisex, circa late 1950s scarf features olive green and black, jacquard-woven, iridescent silk in a pattern of ornate squares. It has a long rectangular shape with short, fringed ends. Perfect for wear as a men’s evening scarf, it will look just as lovely when worn by a lady. It is completely reversible, except for the label being attached near the hem on one end. In excellent to mint condition, this simply elegant, vintage 1950s scarf appears unworn.
The House of Duro was a Chicago tailor shop founded by Carmen, Vess and Jerry Duro in 1950, known for making "suits while you wait" and designing suits for the rich and famous, including Chicago's mayor Richard J. Daley and Liberace, among many others.
