How to date your Vintage Vera textiles

Do you want to know the date of your Vintage Vera tea towel, scarf, towel, or tablecloth?  Building on my infatuation with Vintage Vera Neumann textiles, I was recently trawling through The Vera Company blog and discovered an excellent post that shows all the Vera marks starting in 1958. Link: How to date your Vintage Vera linens. (Does not include any tips on my #1 favorite method: Dinner and a movie. tee hee.)

    Fun. I have a few from my mom, natch’ . However, I lack the scarf-stable-cute gene. Must skip a generation. Can tie them rather tightly around my neck, but this is not the graceful look i want. Contemplating making a coverlet out of them….a filmy drape of sorts….but perhaps the scarf-purists would moan at this abomination.

    Thank you for that info!! I started looking for that the other day & got distracted. I have started a vintage Vera linen collection & that information is very helpfu! How do you always know what is on our minds?! I just love Vera!

    Oh Pam, you always have exactly what I need! You would be impressed, I scored my first two vintage Vera scarves this month, both at estate sales. One is a white and green floral, but the other is red with jumping poodles on it. I adore it! Anyway, you know I am going to be reposting this on my FB! Thanks for another great link!
