The tasselled neck tie supports this as colour is black, with brown flecks. Time over the decades has likely altered the exact fabric shade, as twixt rods on the exterior fabric similar shade to the base trim now.
I've used the old WW2 favourite''star-drops'' to mildly clean, but will give another few cleaning'goes', as have learned shades of fabrics can, or almost return to their original colours with a little time & effort!!
