Princess lace wedding hankie, c.1900

The cream colored hankie features a wide border of cotton net, which was hand appliquéd with bouquets of princess lace flowers. This is a tape lace available in rounded and scalloped shapes like handmade Brussels lace.

Princess lace is a great buy if you want the look without the exorbitant expense of handmade Brussels lace. The center of the hankie is of fine cotton batiste.

The condition is almost excellent. I just found a few pin prick breads in the net ground.

It measures 17" square.
