This little hankie set would have been a perfect gift for a teacher, aunt or grandmother in the 1950's. The sheer, white handkerchiefs have colorful, machine embroidered flowers and scalloped edges that are finished with corresponding colors. There are 3 hankies, one in aqua, one in pink and one in yellow. The original, foiled paper label reads; All Cotton, Exclusive of Decoration - Made in Switzerland. They are still folded as they were originally sold and pinned to a sheet of paper. They come in their original packaging that has a plastic cover of sorts.
The hankies appear to measure about 9 ½” square and are in very good condition. The box, however, shows wear with a torn corner. The plastic was made to slip into the edges of the box instead of over the outside edge. It is warped, wrinkled, and torn, has scotch tape and remnants of a price sticker.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
