This exquisite vintage handkerchief is made of silky, super fine, sheer cotton. Mysterious flowers or leaves dance around the reverse-applique hem, laboriously hand-embroidered with the pin-stitch that is a hallmark of fine Madeira embroidery.

To me, these shapes resemble Roman pines (a.k.a. "broccoli trees") or blasted pines on the Monterey coast. What do you think the embroideress was inspired by?

Made of super fine cotton
Measures about 12 inches square
Condition: excellent
