Brussels lace monogrammed hankie, c.1890

Fine antique hankies with abundant handwork make thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gifts. This could be "something old" on a bride's special day.

The camera angle makes the square hankie appear wider at one end. The hankie has a fine cotton batiste center surrounded by a wide border of handmade Brussels lace. The monogram is of appliquéd lace.

The condition is almost excellent. There is one tiny pale spot on the monogram and larger stain on the lace border.

It measures 12 1/2 square.
