VINTAGE 1971 VERA NEUMANN SOROPTIMIST ASSOCIATION JUBILEE SILK SCARF
A very pretty vintage 1971 scarf by "Vera" Neumann who was known for her gorgeous scarves and linens in the '60s and '70s.
This scarf was expressly designed and manufactured for the Soroptimist Association Jubilee dated 1921 - 1971. The flags of all the countries participating in this international organization for women and girls are bright and vivid . The background is white or off white silk. The scarf and the colors are much prettier than my photos as I am using a new photo editing program and it is hard to get the correct colors.
The following is from Wiki and my thanks to them: "Soroptimist International is a worldwide volunteer service organization for women who work for peace, and in particular to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world.
Through international partnerships and a global network of members, Soroptimists inspire action and create opportunities to transform the lives of women and girls by: Advocating for equity and equality; Creating safe and healthy environments; Increasing access to education; Developing leadership and practical skills for a sustainable future."
There are numerous international flags surrounding the huge emblem in the middle of the scarf with a woman holding up a sign which says "Soroptimist International Association Jubilee 1921 - 1971." The label on the scarf states "Scarves by Vera - All silk - Hand rolled - Made in Japan. The measurements are 26-1/2" x 27-1/3". It looks as though the scarf has never been used. In the lower left-hand corner there is the name Alma Manani. The first letter of the last name was hard to decipher. Maybe she possibly designed the scarf and it was produced by Vera but I do not know for sure. Right above her name there is a tiny hole where the store put the price tag. It looks like a dot of soiling on the photo but it is where the plastic price sticker was placed.
This would make a wonderful gift for someone that you know that belongs to this wonderful organization for women and girls.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
