Railroad Uniform Button Tie Clip - Santa Fe
Vintage brass uniform button tie clip/ tie bar made with a blazer button from the Santa Fe Railroad.
The Santa Fe line, officially the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway company was first chartered in February 1859. Although the railroad was named in part for the capital of New Mexico, the main line never reached there as thelandscape made it too difficult to lay the necessary tracks. The Santa Fe's first tracks reached the Kansas/Colorado state line in 1873, and connected to Pueblo, Colorado in 1876. The steel pinstripe detail adds a touch of contrast to the shiny and matte brass textures.
