This is a general guide line to follow if you have a Vera Neumann scarf and are trying to place the date of when it was manufactured.

Here is a timeline to help date Vera scarves using the signature printed on the scarf.


Her earliest scarves (1947 through the early 1950s) have "Vera" in small print with no symbols.


The labybug & © (C in a circle, copyright symbol) were added to the small "Vera" in the late 1950s.


The ladybug remained into the 1960s, however the "Vera" signature got bigger.

Sometime in the mid to late 1960s, the ladybug was removed, but the copyright symbol remained.
 

Her signature continued to get larger and bolder through the 1970s and 1980s.

Vera died in 1993. At that time her name was licensed. The post-1993 scarves have a small "Vera" signature and the copyright symbol."

Do you know if a scarf with the signature A Vera Design? I know it is from the 50's. The name Vera looks like her signature.

I have a few Vera scarves and a dish towel that are factory samples. They are not rolled yet and the dish towel is not hemmed. All obviously never used. I'm wondering if they are worth any more or less, also they all have Vera and the copyright c
