National Archives Silk Ties
The iconic north portico of the National Archives Building, designed by John Russell Pope, adorns our exclusive 100 % silk National Archives tie. Available in red or blue.
In 1930 New York Architect John Russell Pope was selected to design the National Archives Building. Pope's Neo-Classical design included both the practical and symbolic aspects of housing the nation's records. He proposed a monumental structure with highly decorative architectural features, giant Corinthian columns, 40-foot bronze doors, and inscriptions representing the building's historical importance. John Russell Pope also designed the National Gallery and the Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC.
