Another Vintage Tie: Boxes with Feet

This is certainly an interesting tie! Splattered down the face of the tie flow a sprinkling of little tiny boxes, or squares, in a winding, curving path, kind of like a stream, or mayhap the Milky Way.

But that's not the most interesting part. Some of these little shapes have been captured inside larger squares, and these squares appear to have dancing feet on them. Very odd, indeed!

The tie also has one of those wonderful brocades woven into the fabric. Probably not very visible on the scan, unfortunately. The brocade takes the form of branching, curving vines with elaborate leaves growing on them.

The tie has two labels. The manufacturer's label reads:

Made in U.S.A.

The seller's label is a bit hard to decipher, using an elaborate cursive font, but it appears to say:

Williamsport, Pa.
