This little hankie set would have been a perfect gift for a teacher, aunt or grandmother in the 1950's. The sheer, white linen handkerchiefs have embroidered, scalloped edges. One is embroidered with daisies and the other is embroidered with a large rose and little rosebuds. The foiled paper label reads; Cotton - Made in Switzerland. They are still folded and pinned to a sheet of paper as they were originally packaged in their gift box. Instead of an actual lid, the box has a scalloped cardboard frame with cellophane.
The hankies measure about 9 ½” square and are in very good condition. The box however shows wear with a torn corner. The cellophane is no longer attached at the edges and it is wrinkled, dirty and has remnants of the price sticker.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
