This antique handkerchief presents as new, NOS, appearing to have never been used; found stored in the original box, apparently for the last 100 plus years.
A fine handmade needlerun Irish Limerick lace border was hand sewn to a shaped and scalloped center of very fine and exceptionally soft creamy white linen batiste.  (color best represented in image #2)
The box indicates the textile was purchased at Wilson Bros Magasin de Linge, (Linen Store) located in the Hotel Dennis at 1917 Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  The Dennis, one of the earliest hotels to the area,  has a very long, interesting history.  At the turn of the century it was one of the most affluent hotels on the Boardwalk.  By the later 1920's, to the earlier 1930s, it became known as the Dennis Hotel, versus the Hotel Dennis, so we know the hanky predates that period; likely dating to the later 19th century, or possibly turn of the 20th.
As previously mentioned the handkerchief remains in excellent antique estate condition, free of stains, specks, spots, holes, rips, tears, breaks, wear, or any other issues to either linen or lace.  It does not appear to have ever been used or laundered and was likely stored in the box as a special keepsake for more than 100 years.
The box interior is clean with a soft powdery fragrance, as if someone sprinkled the inside with powder or a delicate scent that is still somewhat detectable after all of these years.  It is lined with a very old sheet of tissue paper that is a little wrinkled, but intact.
The box itself is in good overall condition.  The box bottom is structurally sound, with just some light marks to underside.  The box top / lid has separated slightly at one corner, with two small breaks at opposing side edges, causing a couple of creases to the top.  Nothing extremely significant, or even unexpected for antique ephemera, but a noteworthy mention nonetheless.
This exceptional unused antique Irish Limerick lace handkerchief, notable for charming design, high quality execution and outstanding condition, would make a divine special occasion memento, ie; wedding, bridal, engagement, christening, confirmation, birthday, holiday, anniversary, etc., as well as an outstanding addition to even the most discriminated antique textile, hankie, or vintage clothing collection.
