What a precious child's handkerchief this is! It is signed Mabel Lucie Attwell, who was a renowned British illustrator that lived between 1879-1964. She is best known for her cute, nostalgic drawings of children. This little girl hanging out her Mom's laundry is accompanied by her puppy Waggles and little fairies. I love the one that is swinging on the clothesline!

This little hankie is in pristine, unused condition and does not have any bad odors. It matches another handkerchief that I purchased at the same sale that also features the little fairies. The handkerchief belonged to a 99 year old lady that taught school for many, many years. Her relatives believe that these hankies were gifts from students of hers in years past.

Measures 8 1/2' x 8 1/2
