VINTAGE WEDDING HANKIE, Wedding White Brussels Lace Hanky, So Pretty & Classic, Bridal, Brides Maid Mother of the Bride Excellent Condition

This pretty little hankie measures just 9 x 9 inches and features a corner fashioned with Bussels lace which extends along the edges of the hankie. It's a classic.

We’ve carefully laundered this beautiful hankie to remove stains and yellowing, then pressed and sized it.


A FEW WORDS ABOUT WEDDING HANKIES

Vintage white and ivory hankies that are popular today with wedding parties were produced primarily in the 1940s and ‘50s in places like Madeira, Switzerland, and the Far East. Embroidery, applique, drawn work, application of lace, and hemming were usually done by hand, often by 2 or more women who would each apply her speciality to the piece. Sold primarily in Europe and the United States, ladies would always have a clean white hankie at the ready to dab noses, catch tears, or clean a spot off Junior’s face. It’s said that no lady would let her maid launder her hankies. (I wouldn’t know, of course. I’ve never had one - a maid that is.). Each evening she would wash that day’s hankie in scented facial soap, then smooth it out on her mirror to dry where it would cling until morning. Try it yourself. It really works. Or tell your maid.
