This lovely Victorian Handkerchief Box with Velvet Ribbon Trimming dates to the 1870’s/1880’s. The sides are covered with patterned paper. The top of the box has beautiful velvet ribbon trim as well as one of silk embroidery that looks like needlepoint. I’m certain it was machine made. The inside of the box has a deeply embossed white paper that is trimmed with a pink and gold Victorian scrap. Centered is a lovely scrap of Roses. The colors are bright and so pretty. The paper is in very good condition. On the right side where one would have found the hankie we have instead a lovely ladies cotton and lace neck collar. The space in the center was positioned so you could wear a brooch cameo or A pendant. There is also Sympathy card. The card is a bit younger than the hankie box but they have been living together for quite a while. This box is so lovely, one can only imagine the work of the hand made handkerchiefs that it once held. This is one of the prettiest vintage hankie boxes I have found in some time.
