Ok so I was supposed to do a post with all my weeks finds but something else came up....
I was having a good old rummage in the scarf box at the charity shop yesterday and a little bit of blue caught my eye:
I pulled it out and had a closer look at the horse racing design:
So the question my lovelies is this a real one or a fake?
I've been searching the Internet and cant find this design anywhere. I would assume that the fakes are more likely to be the popular designs. I've checked the edging and it is rolled and hand stitched on the front of the design which according to Hermes collectors sites is a sign of a genuine scarf. I feels like it has some age to it also. I've looked for the copyright symbol but I cant find it but then again according to these sites some of the 1950s scarves didn't have the copyright logo and it was introduced back a bit later. The plot thickens...
So I'm now passing my detective deerstalker hat and pipe over to you to see if anyone can shed any light on this design, can anyone find out what it is called? I'll send a little prize to the first person who manages to find the name of this design.
...but real or fake I still think this is a fun quirky scarf :o)
Oh and a little update on the ebay drama, paypal gave me the money back - hoorah!
