I am offering 3 different styles of the most beautifully hand worked handkerchiefs I have ever seen. I invite you to look at all three and try to decide which is YOUR favorite – I can't choose.

I believe this work is called Tenerife or spider web lace – please correct me if I am wrong. The lace thread (cotton, I think) is applied to the sheerest organdy imaginable. I have included the pix of one of them over a vintage card so that you can see HOW sheer. They are lightly starched and folded on the diagonal. This is how I got them and I didn't even dare to unfold them for the pix – I fear they will float away. They are NOT brittle from age or anything, I just didn't want to risk damaging the perfect lace. They are fresh, clean and spotless. Each hanky has one corner with the major motif, a simpler version is repeated in the other three corners. The hemming attaching the lace to the fabric is SOOOOO painstaking and tiny. This is just amazing work. Each side of the hanky measures approx. 8 1/2".

The first one is worked in white, pink and blue threads, with a heart shape filled with tiny spider webs and crosses. The edging design is superb.

The second one has a quarter moon open design with tiny spider webs and crosses.

The third has 3 round medallions with a 4-petaled flower in the center of each and a filler of tiny spider webs and crosses.

If you would like all three, I will give a 20% discount. Convo me and I will make a custom listing.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS – outside the United States -- shipping is NOT $77.00


-- I AM HAPPY TO SHIP ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, but international shipping costs vary so much for my vintage items, that I ask my potential international buyers to PLEASE convo me for costs PRIOR TO PURCHASE. The shipping price listed for EVERYWHERE ELSE is intentionally crazy high – PLEASE DO NOT PAY IT WITHOUT CONVOING ME FIRST. I will happily calculate your correct shipping price, based on your location and how you want it shipped . Please understand, I cannot get insurance for many international locations. I can usually only track it within the US. I have had VERY FEW lost items shipped overseas, but I cannot be responsible for it once it goes into the US Post. Overseas buyers may have to pay customs or duty upon receiving their item, but it is NOT my responsibility to pay it for you and I cannot build it into the shipping cost. I will put the exact selling price on the customs forms.

Please contact me if you have questions or think I have left something out.

I try to price my vintage items fairly – I want them to find appreciative new homes. If you LOVE an item, but think it is a little out of your range, convo me with an offer and I will see what I can do.

I pack items VERY well and try to ship as inexpensively as is safely possible but I DO add a small bit for supplies.

I proudly use, mostly, recycled packing materials. If you have an issue with that, please convo me at purchase.
