Fine Vintage Whitework Hankie Handkerchief Seed & Satin Stitch, Drawn Work, Finest Needle Lace Medallions

Material:  Fine Linen

Size:  11 & 1/2  x  11 & 1/4  inches
Quantity:  1

With the exception of a small unadorned middle section of the finest off white linen lawn, the entire surface of this hankie is hand embroidered with beautiful satin stitch flowers, delicate seed stitching and beautiful medallions filled with amazing cob web fine needle lace.
The embroidery pattern on the hanky features a center garland, surrounded by intricate drawn work, profuse floral decorations and a fine hemstitched scalloped edge finished with the tiniest satin stitches.

The hankie features high quality hand executed embroidered decorations similar to Portuguese examples, however it is likely from Formosa where skilled needle workers were  competing for the same profitable embroidery trade of the period, c. 1920’s - 40’s.

While this hanky had never been used or laundered, it showed some overall age/storage related darkening, so I carefully soaked and gently pressed it.  It is now clean and fresh.  I did not use bleach so the soft off white color would likely lighten to pure snow white if desired, with the use of bleach/brightener. Due to low light the color in our images does not show with complete accuracy.

This hanky is in exceptionally nice condition.  There are no holes, tears, snags, stains or other problems.  It is really lovely, with fine lace, embroidery, drawn work and hemstitching.
This fine vintage textile would make a very lovely wedding or bridal handkerchief.
