    Your ties are AMAZING, Tiffany and MS! (My favorites are the pin up with 3D glasses, and the V Galet handpaint--wow!)

    I love love love ties. All of them, indiscriminately, and will be waiting with baited breath to see more on this thread! Here are a few of my own faves:

    1. GOP kipper, Dior birthday brocade, handpaint, "Who threw the overalls in Mrs. Murphy's Chowder?"


    2. Red for fall!


    3. 40s moire silk Sulka bowtie w/Deco stars


    4. A tie I deeply regret having sold, a c 1940 shark damask that went to a woman's lawyer friend for his birthday...


    5. Countess Mara pictorial ties (the far right tie is a Tina Leser)

    6. Late 20s tie in box

    FIRST - I am really drooling over some of your finds. What amazing ties you have all found. I love this thread.

    I have this crazy love/hate relationship with ties. I just sold off a lot of 50 of them to another dealer. This way I can buy more ties and sit here and hate them...until I buy more to hate. Then sell off another big lot and start over again :)

    Anyway, some of my favorites - these have all been sold but stick out to me as some of the best I have had:

    Found this one hidden away at a digout estate sale.

    Business in the front, party in the back - Jayne Mansfield:


    Was never able to figure out the characters

    A tale of serious agony and despair. This tie is HIGHLY collectible and I had the great fortune to find it in NWT in mind condition. Sold quickly and I sent off the tie immediately and was happy with my sale. A week later, it STILL hadn't been scanned into the USPS tracking system and my buyer didn't have it. I began bugging the post office until I finally got an email from them - they had ruined my tie - right at my local substation. Wah wah.

    Last picture - I had the VERY good fortune to one day walk into the Salvation Army and notice the cashier sorting ties in between customers. I glanced at them and realized they looked a bit earlier so walked over to take a look. Imagine my surprise to find a cache of deadstock ties ranging from the 20s to 40s. Every single one had their original tags. It was crazy. Needless to say I bought them all and the best part was, I got them before they started using their damn gun to stick price tags through the fabric. YAY!!

    KEEP EM' COMING - this is really fun!

    I'm dying of delight! Oil wells! Horsehoes! Sailing ships! And that 20s handpaint is beyond gorgeous, MS. (The apostrophe in "paint'ed" on the folder is adorable, too... :) )

    Maureen, the tie gods have shed many blessings on you... I would have been unable to sell some of y ours, especially that flapper with 3D shawl...

    The shawl lady is exquisite.
    So sad about the ruined tie!

    I don't have any images worthy of this thread at the moment, but thought I saw a couple of connections in some of the prints already shown:

    'scuse my ignorance, but is that last one the real design name or made up? because I immediately saw an Irish themed tie (you know, green, shamrocks, irish stew etc.)

    and Maureen I wondered if this print was based on the song 'Leaning against a lamppost' from 1937 - would the period fit?

    The tie is 40s so certainly could have been an inspiration.

    Wow, MS, KILLER ties! :wub::wub::wub:

    Melanie--"Who Threw the Overalls in Mrs. Murphy's Chowder" is an actual song, associated with St Paddy's Day. (I learned of the connection from the gent who bought the tie; I had listed it only as "Irish-themed").
