Olympians Tie

Regular price £30.00

This pure silk tie from Fox & Chave features an Ancient Olympians design inspired by frieze motifs from antique vases. Soane's sizeable collection of Greek and Roman vases were a great example of a surviving early 19th century private collection inspired by Sir William Hamilton's celebrated collection. The most famous of Soane's vases is the Cawdor Vase which was already celebrated for its size and exceptionally good state of preservation when Soane bought it at the sale of Lord Cawdor's effects in 1800. Its motif details the myth of the founding of the ancient Olympic Games.

Fox & Chave creates beautiful silk accessories and cufflinks inspired by the arts. Owner, Jemima Haddock, has developed a large Collection of scarves and ties, working with Museums, Galleries and artists all over the world, covering styles from ancient civilisations to  contemporary times. The patterns offer a cornucopia of colour and elegance, creating perfect gifts and indulgent self-purchases. Fox & Chave has been delighted to work with the Sir John Soane Museum and its rich archive of antiquities. Royalties from the license benefit this delightful museum in the heart of London.
