All three of these little handkerchiefs are pretty in their own way.
The first one has a sheer corner sewn floral detailing in white. Above it is a spray of yellow flowers. I think all of that is original to the hankie but I think the nicely detailed lavender tatting around the edge was added at a later time as well as the little touch of lilac in the largest of the yellow flowers. There is a little “tail” of tatting that isn’t attached at the edge. The hankie measures about 10 ¾” by 11”.
The second one also has a tatted edge and the corner detail has a butterfly and tiny flowers, all done in white. It measures about 11” by 11 ¼”.
The las hankie is very sheer with a machine embroidered, scalloped edge and two pink flowers with white accents. It measures about 9 ¾” square.
All three of them are in fairly good, used condition with wrinkles, creases and light wear. I have not laundered or ironed them.
