This is a fabulous vintage hankie or pocket square. It is made of a cream colored linen with a light green mesh lace border and a floral design in one corner. The floral design is embroidered in green, blue, pink and white. It measures 10"x10" (25.4x25.4 cm). It is in good vintage condition--with a small lipstick type stain on one corner. This piece would make a wonderful addition to your collection, a decoration on your wall, or be material for your next sewing project, altered art piece or other creation.

The history of a hanky (from Wikipedia): A handkerchief (also called handkercher or hanky) is a square of fabric, usually carried in the pocket, for personal hygiene purposes such as wiping one's hands or blowing one's nose, but also used as a decorative accessory in a suit pocket. Richard II of England is said to have invented the handkerchief, as "little pieces [of cloth] for the lord King to wipe and clean his nose," which appears in his Household Rolls or accounts, the first documented use of them.

As you know, vintage linens are never perfect and may have been used in the past. Some may have small stains or holes. I chose not to launder them especially as some still have original tags/stickers attached. I did press them for photos, though some of the creases are over half a century old, and have kept them folded as I received them. Please enjoy!
