    B/W Shakespeare 1623

    Celebrate the 400th publication anniversary of William Shakespeare's 1623 First Folio with this stunning silk scarf by Rory Hutton. This beautiful scarf design features references to Shakespeare's birth and death years, his portrait, and recurring motifs in his plays, including a rose, crown, dagger, skull, and quill pen. You'll also find figures dressed in Elizabethan costumes, paying homage to the era in which Shakespeare wrote his plays.

    The First Folio, published seven years after Shakespeare's death, includes 36 of his plays, thanks to the hard work and dedication of two of his friends and fellow actors, John Heminge and Henry Condell, who gathered the plays together. Without their efforts, modern-day experts on Shakespeare's life and work have stated that half of his plays (including Macbeth, Twelfth Night, As You Like It, The Tempest, and Antony and Cleopatra) would have been lost forever.

    This luxurious scarf measures 90x90cm, and is made from 100% silk in Italy, ensuring the highest quality. With its rolled edges, it's sure to be a timeless addition to any wardrobe. Show off your love for the Bard and his enduring legacy with this exquisite scarf from Rory's collection.
