This silk souvenir scarf is an amazing survivor of Florida's early haydays in the sun. It is made of lightweight silk and printed in vivid colors with the then symbols of Florida and a map showing the towns and cities.
You will find families on the beach, blue flamingos, palm trees, cruise ships, sea gulls, horse racing, hibiscus blossoms and a four engine airplane in the sky. What is not shown are attractions which makes it hard to date this scarf. I think this is late 1940s or early 50s.
The colors are varying shades of bright blues, a very golden yellow and emerald green on white with a hot fuschia pink border. The hem is hand rolled and all intact. Because this is thin silk, there are places where the fabric shows its age and one place has separated into a small hole. This is all from age as I don't think this has been worn as a scarf. It is just shy of 32 inches square. This could be archivally matted and framed and would make a fantastic wall decoration for an Art Deco family room or beach house. It would be a pity to put this in a drawer with a scarf collection.
