A lovely pure white handkerchief, loomed of a superbly fine quality of "fil de lin" linen, that is at once elegant, romantic and tailored in its design. Around a central square of linen there is a large border of exceptionally delicate Irish Guipure crochet lace with a motif reminiscent of tiny snow flakes. The name "Jane," framed in a crescent of flowering sprigs, is meticulously embroidered in a high relief of plumetis embroidery in one corner of the hanky. This lovely piece, probably dating from the early 20th century, is flawless - in perfect as-new condition. Dimensions: 16 x 16in.
