This antique French linen handkerchief features a pink daisy plant with a love note attached to it. mint green backgrouns and nice black outlines and border to make it 'pop'.

This hanky would look awesome on a table as a doily, framed, or be way cool used as it is intended...

paquerette = daisy

Bellidiastrum Michelii = a close relative of the common daisy plant

pourquoi etes vous si loir de moi means something like 'why are you so dormouse me'. ??? I think it is some sort of term of endearment and I will continue to research it and update if I find out any more info...

The bottom right of the handkerchief is signed ' Herchberg'

The hanky does have some staining (visible in photos) in the center lines were it was stored for many years folded into a square. Leave it as is or the stains could possibly be removed with a delicate handwashing or dry cleaning.

dimensions: 11-5/8 x 11-5/8 inches

**If I have overestimated your shipping for this item or your combined shipping costs by over a dollar I will refund the difference
