Material:  Linen & Lawn

This exceptional antique handkerchief features handmade Brussels Duchesse lace, with Rose Point de Gaze inserts, surrounding a shaped, gossamer fine lawn center.
The hanky dates to the 19th century, Victorian era, apx. 1870’s - 80's.
It appears to have never been used or washed and is in truly incredibly fine condition.
The handmade Belgian bobbin lace was obviously designed and executed by a talented lace maker.  The pleasingly dense and varied pattern is filled with a myriad of Duchesse floral motifs, as well as vines, leaves and scrolls.
Large leaf clusters, an element usually found on higher quality examples, highlight each corner, with individual leaves centered between.
Rose Point de Gaze needle lace vignettes, with delicate foliage and buttonhole stitch, further enhance the aesthetic design.
Lavish decoration, including flowers, leaves and scrolls, has also been abundantly applied and worked to the shaped, fine lawn center, another feature usually found only on higher quality period examples.
Best of all, this hankie is in exceptionally fine antique estate condition.  It must have been a cherished item, because it was definitely well cared for and well stored.
The handkerchief is clean, with no spots, stains, specks, etc.  Additionally, I find no snags, breaks, holes, weakness, distress or any other issues, with either the lace or batiste center.
The handkerchief would likely brighten slightly with a soak, however since it does no appear to have ever been used or laundered, I will leave that choice to buyer.
A truly exceptional antique Duchesse Rose Point de Gaze lace handkerchief, notable for fine overall design, high quality execution and outstanding condition.
