sheer, ultra finely woven linen has been dyed a brilliant red. the edges have a geometric ascending and descending stairstep pattern that has been embroidered with stark white thread for a lovely contrast. punchwork lines the inside edges in a pattern that mirrors the edges. delicate white thread runs through the punchwork to create a flower-and-vine motif. petite squares of red linen, adorned with small white flowers dot the four corners. the center of the hanky is unadorned, but for a single line of punchwork that also mirrors the geometric pattern of the embroidered edge. the handkerchief has never been used and is in excellent vintage condition.
