For a truly unique look, our vintage hand painted ties are the fashionable way to go. After the First World War, men's hand painted ties became an accepted form of decoration in America. Their popularity peaked in the 40's with street artists and tie manufacturers designing beautiful hand painted pictorial scenes. Hand painted neckties also depicted a variety of novelty themes. These bright and flamboyant neckties sold very well all the way through the 1950s.
