Material:  Linen ~ Batiste & Embroidered Tulle Lace

Size:  11 & 1/4 inch square

Quantity:  1

A very pretty vintage white handkerchief, c. 1910's - 30's.

Hanky center is a very good quality, diaphanous, fancy stylized cross shaped linen or finest cotton batiste.  Wedding handkerchiefs with cross shaped centers are perfect for formal weddings, religious ceremonies and similar celebrations, however they are becoming rather scare and hard to find.
The ornate center is surrounded by lavishly embroidered tulle lace, with beautiful scalloped edges.  The net lace features a fancy feather, foliage and  floral motif, with large figural roses resembling Brussels Rose Point De Gaze and measuring a grand  4 & 1/4  inches deep at the corners.

This hankie is in exceptionally nice vintage estate condition and actually appears to be unused.  When acquired there was some general age related darkening, so it has been gently soaked and pressed (no starch) once by me. The handkerchief is now perfectly white and free of spots, stains, etc.
There are two very tiny areas, however, (apx. 3 mm) at seam/join, where one or two stitches have loosened.  I did not even notice this when washing, ironing or taking the pictures, but discovered while examining the lace with a magnifying glass and had to go back and take additional photos;
see last two close up images.  I believe that when the hankie was originally made there were a few slightly missed stitches and after many years of storage a tiny seam separation occurred.   Easily resolved with a couple of whip stitches.  Other than the aforementioned, no holes, rips, etc., to either center or needle run lace.
The hanky is perfectly clean, fresh, soft and sumptuous, with beautiful texture and drape.

This wonderful old textile was apparently stored carefully away for many years, indicating it was likely a very special treasured keepsake, possibly a bridal, wedding or trousseau heirloom..

It remains a perfect vintage treasure for for today's bride, or other special someone.
