Metropolitan Opera Artwork

My post from September 29, 2009 showcased a piece of original artwork which Edward Gorey created for the Metropolitan Opera. In the posting, I stated that I knew the piece was used for promotional/gift items but was unsure of which items it adorned.

This past week, while perusing some completed eBay listings, I ran across a silk tie on which the Marguerite artwork appears, in company with a number of other images Mr. Gorey created for the Opera. I also found an image of the tie in red on another Gorey site. It is always fun to run across such an I just need to find one of these ties to add to my collection/wardrobe!
