This pretty floral print hanky from the 40s is in distinctive colors of vivid red on white with gray around the edge as well as coloring the morning glories and pansies. In addition, there is celadon green, baby blue and navy blue detailing.

This measures 11.75” x 11.25”.

This may be linen as there are teeny tiny slubs in the weave, indicating linen rather than cotton.

This has a machine stitched hem.

Excellent condition; makes a great stocking stuffer or gift for a true vintie.

We’ve seen vintage hankies used in a variety of ways, and have compiled a list of hanky ideas for you to consider:

You can display them:

*framed in clear acrylic clip frames.

*stretched over a square painters canvas (can use double sided tape to hold them in place).

*arrange down the center of a buffet or dining table for a shower or tea or luncheon

*arrange a group of them above a bed to create a headboard.

*as bunting on a string or satin ribbon to decorate for baby (pastel) or bridal (white) showers. If you do this
with little wooden clothes pins rather than sewing them, they can be taken apart and used individually
again, it’s nice to gift them to the new mother or bride-to-be.

*sewn onto pillows, t-shirts, the front of a little girl’s overalls

They could be sewn into quilts, sachets, tablecloths, or potholders, but we prefer that be done with damaged or flawed hankies rather than perfect ones.

Wrap small gifts with them.

They make terrific stocking stuffers.

Tie them onto your ponytail, belt loop, or purse

Tie them to your suitcase handle so you can identify your suitcase at the airport.

Tuck them into birthday, get well or any holiday card.

We do discount for multiple item purchase orders, and will combine to reduce shipping.

Thanks for looking!
