When was my Vera scarf made?

One of the questions we get the most often is how to figure out when your Vera scarf was made.

Looking at the logo is the best way to figure out the date of any of your Vera products. When the signature is very small and looks as though the letters are all the same size, that scarf is from the 50s. These scarves are from the late 50s, so the V is a bit bigger than the rest of the signature. The late 40s and early 50s scarves show more evenly sized letters. There are no copyright symbols on the 50s scarves, but all of Vera’s designs are copyrighted!

 The signature is still small, but gets slightly bigger and a © symbol is added in the early 60s. The ladybugs are added and the signature is still slightly smaller. The ladybug is the same size as the signature.

In the late 60s, the ladybug disappears and the signature gets very large. At times, the ladybug is still there. You can see the two 1967 scarves that have a signature that is similar to the early/mid 60s logo. They are probably from the first half of 1967. The ladybug disappears for a few scarves and then comes back with a larger signature or after the large signature. Then, in 1969 the ladybug disappears again and leaves a large signature.

…and then reappears in ’73 with a very large signature. She then shortly disappears in 1976.

The ladybug totally disappears in the 80s and doesn’t come back (until our present-day scarves). The signature is smaller than in the 70s.

I hope this is helpful when it comes to dating your Vera scarves!
