This set of three vintage hankies are still in the original box and have never even been unpinned from the foil insert. I did not take them out but estimate them to be about 10 1/2" square. Each has delicate lace trim all around. Two have a section of silvery embroidery in the Swiss style. One has no embroidery I can see but looks pieced together with a nice open stitch about 1" in from each edge. The octagonal box has a very pretty woodland path and river scene in color pasted to the top lid. It is in good shape except for a few spots where there are light rubs and a couple of the corner seems have separated (see images), and slight bowing to the lid. This image reminds me of scenes I have seen on advertising calendars from the Twenties.
Very sweet! A nice find and great addition to your vintage collection!
As always, all reasonable offers are welcomed and considered.
Enjoy each day!
