This one is truly a FIND! The inside square looks like a rayon twill weave which has an embroidered basket of flowers with "FROM ENGLAND" embroidered in red on the top of the basket and on the bottom it has "TO MY DEAR MOTHER". The border fabric looks like a sheer linen with tiny delicate pink and green garlands. There is a blue zig zag stitch attaching the two fabrics.
This handkerchief look like it was from World War 11. A thoughtful son missing his Mother sent this to her during the war. I do not know how the family could part with it! It should have become a family heirloom!
The hanky measures 11" square. It looks like it has never been used. The condition is very good. I will be listing more hanky's from this Estate. The woman had good taste in hanky's. I purchased 30 hankies and they are all out standing!
Please watch my shop. I am always adding new and very collectable items. If I am too slow, please give me a nudge!! ENJOY!
