Attractive Boxed Set Unused Vintage 1920's Embroidered Linen Handkerchiefs, Hankie, Hanky, w/ Original Art Deco Box, Flapper

Material:  Linen & Silk Floss Embroidery

Size:  apx. 9 inches square

Quantity:  1 Boxed Set = 3 Handkerchiefs

A very attractive set of three unused vintage, c. 1920's ladies white linen handkerchiefs, complete with original box displaying wonderful Art Deco graphics.


The hankies remain affixed to their original paper backing, with tissue insert.  Subsequently I did not disturb them to measure exactly, but rather just gave the closest approximate size.


These handkerchiefs are a very nice quality, almost transparent, pure linen lawn, each embroidered with silk floss in unique stylized period floral motifs.  Each hanky is further embellished with unique hand applied multi-colored edge trim, coordinated to compliment the embroidery.


The hankies are in very nice, unused vintage estate condition. They have been safely stored in this box for many, many years and there are no rips, tears, snags, etc.  I do see three very small age/storage related light spots. (see image #3, apx. 1:00 & 3:00) It has been my experience that these types of issues resolve extremely well with a pre-treat and gentle soak, however since the hankies remain affixed in the box I will leave the laundering choice to buyer.


The cardboard box is also in nice condition, however it is not absolutely perfect.  There is one small original pencil point hole on
box bottom, where hankies were apparently additionally affixed by manufacturer, as well as one tiny side tear.  Box lid has one small corner tear and one side tear.  None of these extend up to the actual top of the box lid, where the graphics remain quite bright and nice, with just some very minor edge wear and tiny surface rubs.  The Art Deco Flapper lady, with her bobbed hair and lovely shawl, is very attractive.  I see one pin point size spot near her décolletage, that appears to be an original ink/printing speck.


This nice vintage handkerchief set was apparently stored carefully away for many years, indicating it was likely a very special and treasured keepsake.
