I think I'm the last generation (baby boomer) who saw handkerchiefs as meaningful gifts or mementos given between people. They were Christmas gifts, Valentine's gifts, or a gift to your school teacher or the Bible study instructor. Or, kids received them as awards or tokens of special events, like a confirmation. Now we have 'Kleenex' and hankies aren't absolutely necessary any longer.

This child's hankie is very sweet. It measures 11.5 x 11.5 and is made of a very light cotton linen. The theme is the nursery rhyme, 'The Queen of Hearts' and the images remind me of the Campbell Kids, although they are not. The hankie has been pressed. It has remained so for decades, although there is a crease across it. I guess it stored oddly. But no smells or rips or stains.

I use small hankies as covers over my doll stands, sometimes. Just slip them under the doll's feet and you have two items on display. This one deserves to be displayed all on its own. Thank you for stopping by. Please feel free to ask questions.
