It’s a clear day for high-flying style with this Wright Flyer Tie. Blueprint images of the Wright Flyer subtly stripe a baby blue “sky.” The handsome tie design is adapted from the Wright Brothers' 1906 U.S. Patent #821,393. 100% woven silk. Made and hand-finished in New York City. 56"l. x 3.5"w.
Each time a plane or space vehicle takes off, the wonder of its feat seems brand new. Trailblazing pilots embrace flight’s gravity-defying possibilities, and the bravery of their vision never fails to astonish. Indulge your appreciation of early trailblazing aviators, whose pioneering planes, flight jackets, and other personal items are exhibited in our National Air and Space Museum.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
