Mount Vernon Red Griffin Tie

Mount Vernon Red Griffin Tie

Price: $39.95

 

The Washington family coat-of-arms is surmounted by a “flying griffin”, a mythological creature that was featured on the family crest for generations.  George Washington placed the griffin, a winged lion’s body with a bird’s head, on many of his most important possessions, including his bookplate, silver plate, and presidential coach.  In 1757, Washington acquired a mahogany version of his coat-of-arms, which he placed in the front parlor, “the best room in my house.”

The tie is maroon-red and the images of the griffin are a lighter shade of the same color.

The handmade 100% silk tie is 3 ¼” wide.
