This beautiful vintage Queen Elizabeth coronation scarf dates to the 1950s. An oversized, large scarf, the illustrations on this scarf depict the royal carriage and several crown illustrations, along with key British landmarks including Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and Windsor Castle. No flaws except a couple of fine pin holes where price tickets have probably been punched through the fabric in the past. Crowds gather waving flowers and men dip their hats whilst aeroplanes circulate in the sky. Judging by the fashions and the style of the cars, I predict this was a scarf made to commemorate the coronation of Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II on 2 June, 1953. It’s a soft blue/grey colour and the illustrations are both charcoal and a sandy beige colour. There are no flaws, aside from two tiny pin-holes which have probably developed from price tag tickets inserted in the scarf over time.
