Lot Of 58 Vtg White Wedding Handkerchiefs/crochet/tatting/lace/embroidered/linen:
Large lot of 58 white and off white vintage handkerchiefs.
In this lot are handkerchiefs with fancy lace edges, crocheted edges and tatted edges. There are cutwork hankies, embroidered hankies and pulled thread hankies. There are appliqued hankies, hand hemmed, machine hemmed, scalloped edge and straight edge hankies.
All of these handkerchiefs came from my personal collection. Until an hour ago they were all individually tucked away in their own acid free, secure tab sleeve in a three ring binder marked 'Fancy White Handkerchiefs.' Some of these hankies I have hadfor many years, some are newer -- to me any way -- all are vintage and white or off white. Most are in wonderful vintage condition with no holes, no stains, no loose edging. There area fewwithtiny holes andseveral with faint spots or areas of discoloration -- which may come clean with a good soak, something I had no clue about when first collecting hankies. I will include two men's white monogrammed hankies in this lot - a beautiful embroidered K and a C with its original tag still attached - not seen in photographs above.
All these hankies are clean and pressed in the shape of a fan, which was how I displayedthem in my hankie book. Although I will do my best to pack them so they remain nicely pressed,you may need to ironthem once they arrive.
