Vintage 60s Vera Signature Scarf

Vera Neumann was the first designer to incorporate a signature logo. Different attributes can be found in her signature logo as it evolved through the ages.
From 1947 through the early 50s the signature logo is "vera" in small print with no symbols.
The labybug & © copyright symbol were added to the small "vera" sometime in the mid 50s. The ladybug remains into the 60s, and the "Vera" signature gets larger. Sometime in the mid to late 60s, the ladybug is removed and the copyright symbol remains. The Signature "Vera" continues to get larger through the 70s and 80s.
When Vera died in 1993 her name was licensed. All post-1993 signatures have a small "vera" and the copyright symbol.
