Exquisite Victorian Embroidered Lace Handkerchief Hankie.

For your consideration we are offering this exquisite embroidered lace handkerchief. The floral buds are done in a coral color and the background is done in an egg shell color. The workmanship that went into the detail is magnificent. It looks like it was never used, it's in mint condition. The hankie measures 11 1/2" X 11 3/4".

Handkerchiefs became popular fashion accessories for women during the mid-late nineteenth century and, as such, became tools for women to communicate with men. For example, drawing a handkerchief across one’s cheek signaled “I love you,” while twirling it in one’s right hand meant “I love another.”

Handkerchiefs were also given to women to signify a man’s love for her. This was especially common among sailors who often brought back embroidered silk squares from their travels abroad for the one they adored.
