This is a beautiful large size Liberty silk scarf, in excellent condition. There is the odd tiny mark on close inspection and a scuff to the silk on the top border (please see photos), more noticeable in the photos than in reality. The silk is still crisp, with a glossy sheen and no pulled threads or other issues that we can see. The scarf is in the very sought after and collectable 'Hera' pattern created in 1887 for Liberty by designer Arthur Silver. This particular one is in a rare pale china blue and and pale gold colourway, with the feather design accentuated with teal green background and pale blue peacock feather 'eye'. It is a very delicate and ethereal looking silk scarf because of the colours. The Liberty name is printed into the corner of the scarf as is usual. The hems are hand rolled and all intact.
A fabulous Liberty silk scarf, one of the most, if not the most, collectable and iconic scarf designs from Liberty. Increasingly hard to find in this condition and in the larger size. A version of the 'Hera' scarf is still available at Liberty but is not as collectable as these older versions. This is in an eminently wearable colourway and can be worn casually or dressed up for smart or formal wear, whatever the occasion it is Liberty at a glance. This would make a fabulous gift for her.
It is 35" x 35"
