Material:  Linen & Lace
Color:  White
Size:  apx. 13 inches square
Age:  19th Century ~ 1850 -1880
Origin:  Brussels, Belgium
Quantity:  1

This exceptional antique handkerchief features handmade Brussels Duchesse applique lace that I have also seen referred to as Application d'Angleterre;  dating to the 19th century, Victorian / Napoleon III era, apx. 1850’s - 1880's.
The handmade Belgian bobbin lace in this example was obviously designed and executed by a talented lace maker.  The pleasingly dense and varied pattern features a fancy small scale naturalistic aesthetic motif including lots of flowers, florals, leaves, sprays, sprigs and scrolls, along with butterflies as well, a design element not often seen on this type of period lace. The handkerchief is further embellished with plentiful needlelace fillings, on a fine dotted esprit reseau ground, surrounding a shaped, gossamer fine lawn center.
Surely originally intended for a special occasion, such as bridal, wedding or communion, the hanky could be used today for the same purposes, or perhaps added to a special collection.
We are pleased to advise that this hankie is in exceptionally fine antique estate condition, actually appearing to have never been used, or if it was, it is absolutely not apparent.  It must have been a cherished item, because this textile was definitely well cared for and well stored.  This handkerchief, purchased as presented, is clean, with no spots, stains, specks, etc.  Additionally, other than one tiny, minute separation of a single thread in the reseau, next to one of the esprits, (shown in image #10) we find no snags, breaks, holes, weakness, distress or any other issues, with either the lace, lawn/batiste center, or the tulle.
This exceptional antique Flemish Duchesse lace handkerchief, notable for fine overall design, unique pattern, high quality execution and outstanding condition, would make a divine special occasion memento, as well as an outstanding addition to even the most discriminated antique textile or vintage clothing collection.
