Magnificent Wedding Handkerchief/Hanky mid 20th Century Chinese

This truly is a stunning piece of workmanship. Created on the finest batiste, with the tiniest stitches, it almost defies belief that anybody's eyesight and skill could have made this mini masterpiece possible!

Worked in China around the middle of the 20th Century, hand embroidery of this calibre will never be seen again, certainly not at a price that would ever be affordable.

Measuring 11 1/2" x 11". Covered almost entirely in scrollwork, flowers and leaves. Padded satin stitch and pulled work have been used extensively, the work being white on white. The design is classically formal and beautifully balanced.

This handkerchief is precious and deserves to be cherished for the generations who will follow. One can only marvel at its gossamer beauty and perfection. A stunning wedding handkerchief, worthy of being carefully guarded and passed from bride to bride for decades to come.
